Review – Matt Andersen & The Mellotones

Album: Matt Andersen & The Mellotones: Live at Olympic Hall
Release Date: May 25, 2018
Genre: Blues

New Brunswick blues artist Matt Andersen has released a live 9 track album from his performance at Olympic Hall. With his signature sound backed by the excitement of the audience, the listener gets a sneak peek of what it’s like to be at one of his shows.

He kicked the album off with Weightless, a guitar-heavy track that packs a punch. With The Mellotones accompanying him, his normal, sit down, softer show takes a backseat to the full force of an epic, band backed performance. The audience’s excitement grows throughout the album, lending an ambience to the sound that is nearly impossible to experience outside of a concert. You can feel the connection made with the audience and almost feel like you were apart of it. Besides the fact that you can pretend you were at the show when listening to the album, you can hear just how talented Andersen and The Mellotones are without editing their sound in the slightest.

Overall, the album is a testament to the true talent possessed by the band. It’s the next best thing to actually attending a live show, with the added benefit of listening to it wherever, whenever.
