Matt Sever has a moment on his new CD where he sings with a small chorus of voices, on the song "I Will Do the Breathing". A sweet, moving piece that begins, "I saw you cryin in the rearview mirror / some things are closer than they appear". Like Matt himself, the chorus is composed of criminally underappreciated artists such as Michael Fracasso, Bruce Hughes and Lee Barber. On banjo, trumpet or glockenspiel Matt the Electrician writes perfect little songs ~ like an americana music box.

Also on this Episode, we take an introductory dip into Rod Picott's fine new effort, and hear from Blackie + the Rodeo Kings with Mary Margaret O'Hara. More importantly, Richard Buckner is finally back!
