Listen to LA Songwriter Matt Kivel’s “Insignificance”

Listen to the first single from Matt Kivels new record, out on July 8th via Woodsist.


On July 8th, LA's Matt Kivel, formerly of Gap Dream, will release his sophomore collection of mellow guitar jams called Days of Being Wild. "Insignificance" has a warmly familiar sound and the dusky guitar lead reminds me of a couple different songs at once. It's splashed with a little whiskey and a little sunshine, coming off like timeless folk-rock with a new-school soul. New York label Woodsist is putting out the record, which seems like a more than appropriate home for Kivel's pretty and restrained songwriting.
