Matt Woods has released the new Mornings After EP. This record is a companion piece to his 2019 album Natural Disasters. You can find a review for that one here. This EP was recorded during the same sessions as the 2019 album and with the same band. This companion piece helps to add depth to an already great album experience. Let’s take a look at some of the tracks here.
The album kicks off with “Tomorrow’s All We Have” which is a slower bluesy rock kind of tune. I love the keys on this track and the guitar solo takes you back to a small smoky dive bar. This also has one of Matt’s signature power vocal performances similar to his song “Deadman’s Blues”. I also love the track “Getaway”. It has a bit of an island rock sound on a track about the need to get away from your normal life. I love the slide guitar on this one. Finally, “Sunshine” is another slow bluesy track on this record. Like the opening track, it has another great vocal performance from Woods. I dig the guitar riffs going throughout this one.
Matt Woods has released a great companion EP to his 2019 full length album Natural Disasters. If you were a fan of Natural Disasters or his previous work, I highly recommend checking this release out. There are some great vocal performances on these songs for these to be tracks that were left off an album. I kind of wish we could get a deluxe package with both Natural Disasters and Mornings After in the same release as these tracks add some depth to the original LP. Check out everything Matt Woods has going on through his website here. Mornings After is available everywhere as of September 4th, 2020.
