It’s short, bombastic, rambunctious and just plain fun - it might make you look at folk-punk in a different light (extracted from

Coming from Venice, MojoMatt and DavMatic (seriously) have created a loud, very jangly and very upbeat album, despite the lyrical content. Songs for Faraway Lovers opens up with the very rambunctious “Why Don’t You Leave Me?” which features some rollicking guitars, drums and some very soulful harmonica action. It moves on through very bluesy, folksy ballads and very punk inspired rockabilly tunes that seem to have been written for a time long before ours.
The thing that really makes this album is the overall jovial attitude and general enthusiasm that surrounds it. It comes out especially in the lyrics, sung by MojoMatt. Despite having, depressing content about lost love, it sounds like these guys are just having a lot of fun. The vocals sound very rough and alcohol worn, which suits the music very well and the production is very rough and dusty. Overall, Songs for Faraway Lovers sounds like a sort of blast from the past.
