Matt Goud of Northcote¬†wears a fiery beard that occupies the better part of his face and ages his twice over. But if you look at his eyes you can see there is still a soul of a young man swimming in the whiteness, a kind soul. He’s from Regina and formerly of the hardcore band Means and The Emerson Letters. His debut EP ‘Borrowed Chords, Tired Eyes’ is something definitive of where he’s at in life, with the kind of folk and Americana that comes out of years of playing music loud and aggressive. Sooner or later, you’re going to get older and softer, and you’re going to want to strum those chords delicately and sing about simple things, it’s inevitable.

He’s got that good, strong voice that keeps him far from any association with wussy-folk poets. He’s a man from the prairies, and if need be, he’d likely build you a deck, tell you he loves you and probably works hard, somewhere outside. That’s what I get when I listen to his EP. He lends a certain elegance to the whole flannel and beard aesthetic. He was kind enough to put together a lovely mix for the Mixtape Series, that suggests he’s borrowed a few chords from the artists below. Check out more of Matt’s music HERE.
