Review of Matt Andersen – Weightless (True North Records)

Matt AndersenWith more than 2 million YouTube views, Matt Andersen truly is no longer one of New Brunswick’s best-kept secrets. Weightless, his debut for Canadian indie label True North Records (due for release on February 4), sees the larger than life Andersen teaming up with an impressive array of songwriters including Joel Plaskett and David Myles, delivering a diversely satisfying set. From the pseudo-reggae feel of opening track I Lost My Way through more reflective songs such as the bluesy Let’s Go To Bed and Between The Lines, Weightless just might be the record that finally makes Andersen the international success story that Maritimers knew he would be.
