Matthew Squires and the Learning Disorders is at the heart of the matter the alt-indie songwriter Matthew Squires from Austin in the USA plus a long list of contributors.
Constantly creating new music Matthew Squires and The Learning Disorders can also be found playing live. On listening to the material the audience is given the distinct impression they are sharing in the excoriation of the meandering thought processes and dreams of Matthew as the material sweeps across vast swathes of context.
There is a sense of lightness and confusion that is delivered in the wrapping of electronic and acoustic instruments each piece delivering something unexpected and it is those joyous strides of disconnection that gives the material that floats around the room. Like a sage delivering wise questions there is a prophetic feel to the outpourings with the almost chanted lyrics. The whole effect being slightly jarring whilst simultaneously cathartic.
Matthew Squires and The Learning Disorders is not about inventive music, rather inventive free-thinking and as such it works a treat. I have little doubt that the style and presentation will divide audiences, but if you get into it, then like me, you won’t understand why everyone else doesn’t revel in the sounds.
