After his well-planned out tour to the UK was tragically postponed due to the horrific covid-19 pandemic which has changed our lives forever, Matt Jaffe expertly finds his way through the volcano-filled vortex of current disastrous times like Dr Who would as he tries to fight off those long distance blues on ‘Time Traveler‘.
Matt Jaffe is a soulfully smooth San Francisco, California-based indie alt-rock singer-songwriter. He makes a sterling blend of music creations that is deep in thought and high in quality, as he shows us his class on this terrific single.
”I wanted to record this song like it was produced by Brian Eno. The grand sonic vistas of Joshua Tree, the atmospheric panoramas of Remain In Light. It’s a love song in the tradition of Ben Gibbard’s Transatlanticism, lamenting long distance with a spacious landscape that invites you to lie down on its featherbed of Swiss Clock drums and Dalí Clock guitars.” ~ Matt Jaffe
Taken off his recent seven-track album called ‘Undertoad‘, this is a well-constructed track from a wildly creative artist who brings us a nostalgic gem. With so much music around that is made with a copy cat grin and a whisker of skill, this is a refreshingly mind-mover of an experience which leaves you totally transfixed at this compelling single.
‘Time Traveler‘ from the San Francisco-based world class indie rock singer-songwriter Matt Jaffe, shows us into a world that can divide many unexpectedly. The unfortunate long distance keeps your souls from interconnecting and the yearn to be with that special human can’t be replaced by any kind of technology. Sung with a composed tone and featuring complexly created lyrics which shows us his growing greatness, this is a wonderfully projected track which will have you listening twice.
