Every so often, something drops into my inbox that strikes me as a bit different and worthwhile featuring.
In this case it was an email from America, from a young man called Mat Sak who performs as Suede Arrow. This is wonderfully raw garage rock with a slight bounce to it. According to his email, back in 2012 he knew he needed to turn around his life when he found himself in George Bailey county jail as a teenager. So this year he hopped on a train to LA with nothing but his clothes and a guitar.
It’s a cool story and these are three tracks you ought to hear. Sorta in the vein of Beck, early White Stripes and pre-Ziggy Bowie.
