Show Review

Towards the end of his recent performance in Austin TX, Matt Nathanson admits he and his band might be a little rusty having not toured for over a year and a half. Certainly had us fooled, right from the peppy, shaker-infused first serenade ("Modern Love"). In this performance, Nathanson and his band never failed to charm the audience with the playful, yet humble persona exemplified in his music.

Though he may disagree, what's most mesmerizing about our latest concert release is Nathanson obvious onstage ease. His music is honest. He introduces radio hits like "Come On Get Higher" and "Car Crash" while shrugging his shoulders, giving simple explanations like, "it's a song about love in the truest sense."

Yet beyond this lies an uninhibited exuberance. Though his anecdotes humble, he performs with incessant passion and energy, interjecting chuckle-worthy comments to the audience like "yeah, sing it, f***in' sing it," and "that's good, that's cool."

Watching our latest concert video with Matt Nathanson will leave you craving more. Luckily his new album Modern Love comes out today! Welcome him back to the stage and back on your stereos.

You're so delicious You're so soft Sweet on the tip of my tongue You taste like sunlight And strawberry bubble gum You bite my lip You spike my blood You make my heart beat faster Own me, you own You rattle my bones You turn me over and over Til I can't control myself Make me a liar One big disaster You make my heart beat faster It's the way you swell, slow Pushing right out of your seams It's the way you smile, baby When you've got me on my knees You're all night noise You're sirens howl You make my heart beat faster Own me, you own You rattle my bones You turn me over and over Til I can't control myself Make me a liar One big disaster 'Cause you make my heart beat faster 'Cause I jump back, crash, I crawl I beg, I steal, I fall Yeah you own me And you own me and you make my heart beat faster, faster I can't get enough because it's gone I guess this world is over to me Own me, you own and rattle my bones You turn me over and over Til I can't control myself You make me a liar One big disaster 'Cause you make my heart beat faster Rattle my bones You turn me over and over Til I can't control myself You make me a liar One big disaster 'Cause you make my heart beat faster You make my heart beat faster

I remember hearts that beat, yeah, yeah I remember you and me, yeah, oh yeah Tangled in hotel sheets You wore me out, you wore me out I remember honey lips and words so true I remember nonstop earthquake dreams of you You're coming on fast like good dreams do, all night long Still can feel you kiss me love Still can see your brown skin shine, shine Still can feel you kiss me love So come on and drive me wild, so wild And you move like water, oh yeah And you broke like waves I've never been deeper, so far gone Your sister in the next room with the television on Still can feel you kiss me love Still can see your brown skin shine, shine Still can feel you kiss me love So come on and drive me wild, so wild I can lay in your arms Lay in your arms for days
I remember hearts that beat, yeah, yeah And I remember you and me We were young, we were wild, and we were free Still can feel you kiss me love Still can see your brown skin shine, shine Still can feel you kiss me love So come on and drive me wild I still can feel you kiss me love Oh love Still can see your eyes like diamonds, diamonds Memories are strong enough Come on and drive me wild Just come on and drive me wild
I'm wide awake and so alive Ringing like a bell Tell me this is paradise And not someplace I fell 'Cause I keep on fallin', keep on falling I wanna feel the car crash I wanna feel the capsize I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop 'Til I'm satisfied I wanna feel the car crash 'Cause I'm dyin' on the inside I wanna let go and know that I'll be all right, all right Just push me until I have to fly I've shed my skin, and I've shed my scars Take me deep out past the lights Yeah, where nothing dims these stars Nothing dims these stars I wanna feel the car crash I wanna feel the capsize I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop 'Til I'm satisfied I wanna feel the car crash I'm dyin' on the inside I wanna let go and know That I'll be all right, all right
I get lost in my mind, lost in my mind I get lost in my, lost in my, Lost in my mind I get lost in my mind, I get lost in my mind I get lost in my, lost in my, Lost in my mind I get lost in my mind Oh I get lost in my mind I get lost in my, lost in my, Lost in my mind I get lost in my mind I get lost in my mind I get lost in my, lost in my, Lost in my mind
I wanna feel the car crash I wanna feel the capsize I wanna feel the bomb drop, the earth stop 'Til I'm satisfied I wanna feel the car crash 'Cause I'm dyin' on the inside I wanna let go and know That I'll be all right, all right
So open wide So open wide So wide Hey hey
So we lie here in the dark All the wrong things on fire In sickness and in health To be with you, just to be with you 'Cause in your wedding dress To have and to hold Even at my best I wanna let go And you hold me in your arms When all that I can feel Is my future in your hands When all that I can see Is how long ever after is When it's all that I can do To be with you, to be with you In your wedding dress To have and to hold Even at my best I wanna let go Thought I'd lost you Thought I'd lost you I gave you away Thought I'd lost you I'm jealous of the moon For how it moves the waves In your wedding dress To have and to hold 'Cause even at my best I wanna let go And I wanna be somebody else now And I wanna thicken my skin And I wanna wish it all Wish it all away again C'mon, let me go, let me go Let me go
Would you guys remind me to turn that amp back on when the next song happens? Or else I'll get halfway through it like I did "Car Crash" and be like 'What the fuck?' It's good to hang with you guys.
Thanks a lot for coming out.
We're sort of shaking off the rust.
We haven't toured in like a year and a half.
It's fun sort of, and totally fucking daunting.
So it's nice to have you here and spend your time, sweat on you.
This is a song I wrote.
This about like love in its truest sense of the word that I had felt at that time.
This is "Come on Get Higher.
" I miss the sound of your voice And I miss the rush of your skin And I miss the still of the silence As you breathe out, I breathe in If I could walk on water If I could tell you what's next Make you believe I'd make you forget Come on get higher Loosen my lips Faith and desire And the swing of your hips Just pull me down hard And drown me in love So come on get higher Loosen my lips Faith and desire And the swing of your hips Just pull me down hard And drown me in love I miss the sound of your voice Loudest thing in my head And I ache to remember All the violent, sweet Perfect words that you said If I could walk on water If I could tell you what's next I'd make you believe I'd make you forget So come on, get higher, Loosen my lips Faith and desire And the swing of your hips Just pull me down hard And drown me in love So come on get higher, Loosen my lips Faith and desire And the swing of your hips Just pull me down hard And drown me in love I miss the pull of your heart I taste the sparks on your tongue I see angels and I see devils And God, when you come, so come on baby Just hold on, hold on, hold on Oh my baby, sing Sha la la Sing sha la la Ooh Ooh Ooh So come on, get higher Loosen my lips Faith and desire And the swing of your hips Just pull me down hard And drown me in love So come on, get higher Loosen my lips Faith and desire And the swing of your hips Just pull me down hard And drown me, drown me in love It's all wrong, it's all wrong It's all wrong, it's so right So come on, get higher Come on and get higher 'Cause everything works, love Everything works in your arms.
We'll see you again.
We'll see you again!
