Song of the Day 2/21/12: Matt Elliott - "Dust Flesh and Bones"
Matt Elliott's recently released album is my first experience with his dirty, acoustic border music, but the dude has been making studio records for years now -- both under his own name and the moniker Third Eye Foundation. "Dust Flesh and Bones", off the record The Broken Man, sounds exactly how you'd expect a song with a title like that to sound. Spanish guitar picking sets the stage for Elliott's deep Leonard Cohen-esque grumble to suck you into his dark world of somber emotion and painful remorse. Each section of this multi-part song is equally impressive and imaginative -- it's all a mark of an artist at the top of his game. Check it out below:
