“ …an enigmatic cross between Belle and Sebastian, Wilco, and Ben Folds…. a master of his craft… as tasteful as indie rock gets…pure, unmitigated emotion mixed with a love and a yearning.” - Earmilk
“Radically radiant. Thin Lear’s 70’s influenced rock is something that we clamor for. It sizzles with dexterity and palpable excitement.” – Comeherefloyd
“Emotionally rich melodies and soulful vocals. The sound really floors you –it’s orchestral and exquisite.” - Diamond Deposits
“Overflowing with strings and classical instrumentation, Thin Lear is a rich evocation of 1960s pastoral rock with a decidedly contemporary bent to its storytelling. I want to curl up with this, and float by on a tidal wave of warm baroque vibes.” - Baeble Music
“[The Guesthouse is] a charming ride throughout…a tasteful blend of organic percussion, playful guitar work, and a splash of saxophone, serving as the perfect accompaniment to Longo’s enveloping vocals. Left us anxiously looking forward to the full album.” - The Music Ninja
Thin Lear, the eclectic project of NYC-based songwriter/producer Matt Longo, lovingly crafts ornate, cinematic songs, from glowing ballads, to psychedically-tinged folk, to propulsive grooves, with rushes of color, and lush walls of sound.
