The latest EP from DC-based singer-songwriter Matt Tarka, Vision Hazy, is a rotating photo album of bright memories and golden nostalgia that winds along an open road.
The EP, which was mixed by Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Dinosaur Jr.), has melodic highs and sentimental moments of contemplation. While primarily upbeat, the harmony-driven power pop sunset of “Selling Roses” smoothes out an Americana landscape. Others, like “Midnight Sun”, highlight the vulnerability and honesty in Tarka’s voice and delivery.
Perfect for the open road, or the warm embrace of a turntable, Vision Hazy wafts like the wind, drifting off somewhere without expectation or pretense.
