This is a Pre-Matt the Music Man Recording. (Recorded before Matt started writing children's music.) Raw acoustic rock 'n' roll. No bells - No whistles. This is a very personal album that Matt recorded himself. This is his first solo album and it's just what the title implies, "Bare Bones." It's exactly what you would hear if you came to one of his solo shows back then. It rocks! 

ALBUM REVIEW:

Bare Bones 'is a fascinating and unique musical offering'

The Daily Gleaner, Saturday November 21st, 2009

Wilfred Langmaid

 

"Frederictonian Matt McFarlane had the fire of music light within him in the 1990s. The spark was rock, grunge, and alternative music of that decade. This spark is the antecedent of a very raw, aggressive way of acoustic guitar playing, singing, and song construction.

 

That fascinating combination - heavy '90s rock at the core of solo acoustic singer/songwriter craft - makes McFarlane's entirely self-written, self-recorded, self-mixed, and self-produced album Bare Bones a fascinating and unique musical offering.

 

The fusion works for a few reasons. Most importantly, McFarlane is at the core a decent songwriter. The 11 tracks that make up the so-aptly-named Bare Bones are diverse; their power has the dual weaponry of good lyric writing and a furious delivery on vocals and guitar.

 

The whole thing is a stirring one-person offering of the roots of man's musical soul, delivered by a hitherto-unknown local musician who has the skills to make a unique offering work well."

 

Fredericton-based freelance writer Wilfred Langmaid has reviewed albums in The Daily Gleaner since 1981, and is a past judge for both the Junos and the East Coast Music Awards. His column appears each Saturday.

The New Therapy (2006)

OUT OF PRINT. This is another Pre-Matt the Music Man Recording. It is the product of Matt's 3-Piece rock band. It is no longer available, but Matt will record some rock like this again someday!
