Stalwart Costa Mesan Matt McCluer is a home-taping R. Stevie Moore-ian polymath who can pull a song out of anything and make it sound almost any way he wants: maybe punk, maybe pop, maybe indie, rock or folk and anything else you can shake out of a guitar, and if he can mix all those together in a live set or on an album or even a single song, so much the better. He’s one of those guys who’s so fluent and informed about music—somebody who figured out it’s a language and an art at the same time, and just went and taught himself to speak—that it just flows right out of him, or so it so often sounds. Think Robert Pollard, the Nerves, the Flamin Groovies in both Roy and Cyril modes, Lou Reed in rock ‘n’ roll valentine mode—you know, good music. That’s what he does.
