I’ve been looking for some new music lately, much to my delight, Matt Nathanson released his new album Modern Love just a few days ago. I thought that I’d like it when I bought it, but I didn’t think that I’d like it as much as I do.

Two nights ago, Matt Nathanson performed his single “Faster” on Jimmy Kimmel Live:

He also performed the title track “Modern Love“:

Right now, my favorite song is the more moody “Kiss Quick.”

You can buy Modern Love on iTunes or Amazon, and I didn’t realize until just now that Amazon is a few bucks cheaper. Hooray for competition!

I’m not exactly plugged into up-and-coming musicians. But I found Matt Nathanson through Paul Thomas, a live-sound engineer who often works with Matt Nathanson and who listens to my NoodleCasts.

I liked the whole of Modern Love so much after just 24 hours with it that I bought Matt Nathanson’s prior two albums, Beneath These Fireworks (2003) and Some Mad Hope (2007). So far, I don’t like them quite as much as Modern Love, but I am enjoying them.

Here’s his video from his more mellow song “Come On Get Higher” from Some Mad Hope:
