VICE had an article today about how hot D&D is right now. I was like, “awesome.”

Yesterday, Matthew Good stopped by my radio program and we got to talking about his new record, Chaotic Neutral. The title comes from a character alignment in Dungeons & Dragons. When you buy a physical copy of the album, you’ll get a print of his hand drawn fantasy map for a place called Scarrow Foregate.

Matt Good’s love of cartography was inspired by medieval cartographer John Speed and also Jeffrey Beebe.

If you want to dive more into our complete conversation, here is the audio from our discussion.

We talk Dungeons & Dragons, map cartography, medieval typography, his scrapped record, finding inspiration and the changing tastes of Matt Good, touring and his challenges, his trip up North this summer, kids, Holly McNarland singing on Chaotic Neutral, Bones from Midnight Oil playing bass, and a 20th anniversary book of all his songs’ lyrics. Buy the new record Chaotic Neutral on September 25th.

Buy Chaotic Neutral on September 25th and SEE Matt Good also on the 25th at HMV on Robson. Tour announcement is coming next week.

Go with yourself.

Matt Good
New Matt Good music is available today.  The single is called “Had it Coming” and it’ll be from a record called Arrows of Desire (September 24th).

What do you think?  First listen I wasn’t blown away,m but with a few repeat listens I’ve really started to feel the groove.   Its a pretty simple pop song.  Chorus picks up and its easy to singalong with this track.

Matt Good will be on stage in Victoria on Saturday, July 13th as part of Rock The Shores.

I don’t feel like Matt Good is reinventing the wheel with this song.  And maybe in the pantheon of so many great Matt Good (and band) songs…this will be a track that is part of it.  Nothing more, nothing less.    The first few comments on his soundcloud page have people raving.  My man Two was meh (and he is a fan).  Who knows, maybe a couple more listens… and I’ll LOVE it.

Go with yourself.
