Matt Pond

March 15 at Union Transfer

Matt Pond PA was among the best bands affiliated with Miner Street Recordings, a Philadelphia studio that takes its name from the West Chester street where its co-founders once shared a house as students at WCU. An indie-rock dude with rather erudite aspirations, leader Matt Pond liked to play sitting down, and strings played a major role in the group’s languid yet sophisticated sound. Since leaving Philly and parting ways with the “PA,” Pond has found moderate success in unlikely places, including a Starbucks TV ad campaign. His latest CD, The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand, is beautifully rendered, artfully accessible folk-pop that deserves a wider audience—especially now that Pond is playing standing up.
