Matt Pond

Probably too late to write about The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand, but Matt Pond PA continues to make pretty high quality indie pop, as on this big jump to the majors.  Zachary Houle at PopMatters wasn't thrilled with the album as a whole, but he did like the single, "Love to Get Used." 

He said:  Even better, though, is the follow-up track, “Love to Get Used”, which is the lead-off single on the album. It’s easy to see why – it’s clearly the best thing to be found here. With a jaunty guitar line and saccharine female vocals in the chorus, this might just be a defining moment for Pond as a popsmith. It’s just one of those songs that will get stuck in your head, and one wishes that Pond had more songs like this in his arsenal.
