Will Johnson @ KUT 7/11/11
Centro-Matic released their new album, Candidate Waltz, last month, and in certain ways, it was a bit of a surprise.
Bottom line: Will Johnson is a fantastic songwriter, so it’s not unreasonable to assume that Centro-Matic will have great music. At the same time, fans usually have a fair assessment of what to expect. Their style is a more sprawling, complex kind of indie folk that’s rather atmospheric. This time around, with Candidate Waltz you have something slightly more fast-paced, upbeat and very catchy – not the typical route, but just as impressive. They’re simple songs with great tempos. It’s brilliant and beautiful.
