aleceiffel72 I have to admit, I'm more into Matt's old records. St. Catherine and The Flower Lane. So I was very surprised about this new, unexpected album. And I like it a lot, from the first to the last song. "Adult Rock" in particular is great! I used to hear up and down St. Catherine on my North Sea vacation. And since I'll be back in August, I already know what I'll hear then. Favorite track: Adult Rock.

vegangandalf Fantastic album front to back, and the songs get better and richer with each listen! Major highlights currently stuck in my head are Adult Rock, Only a Fool, Window of Opportunity, Raise the Stakes, and Alternative MTV. Bravo Ducktails!!

Maxime Haudrechy Just received impressions LP! Great new material, some new colors added to Matt’s palette, on songs like Only a Fool with flute synths , or Raise The Stakes with that nice prefab sprout touch. Thanks Matt! Favorite track: Raise The Stakes.

First Gear 04:00
First Gear Written April 26th, 2021 
 I’ve tried to play it down  The pain i’ve hid so well  Since you pulled out the driveway last year  I know it was my fault  Which drove you off the lot  But I sense our love’s in first gear  I just wanted you to be here  Wanted to feel you near me  To see life from the front seat  Nothing on earth comes close  To driving with you on the road  Accelerate our love  Shift the gear stick up
 I wish that I could show you  Just how I’ve fixed her up  I wasn’t in my best shape last year  And you can take forever There’s no rush to get here  But when you see my exit  Turn right there

Adult Rock 03:39
Adult Rock Written March 30th, 2021 Watching the sun go down Not with anyone you know that well The wind blows your hair around Someone you lost brings you down Looking for something new But deep down you know it’s inside you So what are you going to do? To master a heart that beats with truth Let the sun take a bow As light sinks into the ground The people are slowing down Let the sun take a bow
3.
Only A Fool 03:21
Only a Fool Written March 1st, 2021 Wanted more then lost it all Still not stuck complaining Looking at your bank account You got less than you put in it Then you woke up feeling brand new Accepted a point of view Only a fool could feel this good When he’s got nothing to lose Only a fool could have enough When he’s got no one to love Only a fool, Only a fool Advice so easy to give Hard to stay within Only a fool could feel this good When he’s got nothing to lose Only a fool could have enough When he’s got no one to love Only a fool, Only a fool

Impression 03:52
Impression Written March 3rd, 2021 When I saw you last night Surrounded by those guys You shined like a spotlight Wanted to leave an impression On you I tried everything I could But couldn’t catch your eyes enough Made a fool out of myself Just wanted to impress you Don’t wanna go there right now Been thinking about it all day long So tired of speculating And I don’t want to be wrong In the corner playing pool Tried to nail a risky move Sunk an eight ball trying to Leave an impression on you I tried everything I could But couldn’t catch your eyes enough Made a fool out of myself Just wanted to impress you Don’t wanna go there right now Been thinking about it all day long So tired of speculating And I don’t want to be wrong
5.
Window of Opportunity Written Dec 5th, 2020 Put all your money in This time it’s worth the risk Cause I’d jump at the chance For this opportunity I’m dreaming of a bull To make my money grow I’d risk it all for you For a new reality How high’s the interest? This time it’s different You’ll only get this once And if it works we won Don’t miss this opportunity Window of opportunity

Reminiscent 03:52
Reminiscent Written Nov 11th, 2020 I’m sitting on the airplane Looking out the window Thinking about a couple things I could pursue If I wanted to, cause there’s nothing to do now Waiting for a friend at the baggage claim Talking to a woman with a friendly face Said she hates the cold, talks real slow I liked her though should’ve let her know Reminiscent Up on the roof Reminiscent I’m waiting for you Reminiscent On the way home in my brother’s car Turning up the music cause it goes so hard Said he loves the song and listened all day long Let’s play it on repeat for the long drive home Reminiscent Up on the roof Reminiscent I’m waiting for you Reminiscent

Raise the Stakes Written November 16th, 2020 No one wants to live alone forever I was sweating in the autumn weather Some are sitting on a bench together A letter written but not delivered I was dealt a bad hand maybe Time to up the ante The stakes are high but I’ve got time to lose Someday we’ll meet in the hills of the sun Let’s make a bet if you’re not with someone To be together and to fall in love I’ll try my hardest not to mess it up I’m the holding cards so close to my chest Cause there’s no point in being second best The game is unfair and too rich for my blood All bets are off when you’re stuck in the mud Raise the stakes x4 I was dealt a bad hand maybe Time to up the ante The stakes are high but I’ve got time to lose

The Wind 03:36
The Wind Written June 15th, 2020 (Instrumental)

Definitely Love Written December 27th, 2020 I want it again Why does it go away? The passion it always fades I lost her again She comes but she never stays I know that she can’t trust me enough But were laughing for days Living without a care How could she feel a different way? Definitely in love Can’t think about it enough Don’t see another one But her tonight Definitely in love Heart beat is speeding up Don’t see another one But her tonight

Alternative MTV Written January 3rd, 2021 Alternative MTV Is all that I want to see Alternative MTV Come sit right next to me Let’s turn on the MTV It’s all that I want to see Alternative MTV Alternative MTV It all changed in 98 That’s when it all went sideways Bitter sweet symphony The Verve and karma police Alternative MTV Is all that I want to see Alternative MTV Come sit right next to me Before YouTube ruled the game Dave Matthews and Shania Twain Ben Folds Five and Puff Daddy The Notorious B.I.G. Alternative MTV Is all that I want to see Alternative MTV Come sit right next to me Let’s turn on the MTV It’s all that I want to see Alternative MTV Alternative MTV
