The Rattling Baddlies - Episode 189
Raised in the Schoharie Valley, Durfee's songs reflect his rural upbringing. Leaving pretense and posturing behind, Durfee performs with an aching honesty, pushing his picking capabilities to the limit. Story songs, breath-taking instrumentals, and truly original works dominate Durfee's playing, with surprising covers and moments of lightness and laughter keeping listeners engaged. Matt Durfee's enchanting, reflective songs are drawn around complex, finger-picked acoustic-guitar lines, like a cross between American Beauty (Grateful Dead) and Nick Drake's Five Leaves Left. Too interesting to be lumped into the pop category, too smart for the freak-folk boom, Durfee is in a category all his own. - Metroland Durfee also performs with as part of the acoustic rock trio The Rattling Baddlies alongside Thomas Krebs and August Sagehorn; the rhythm section from the Albany rock band Alta Mira.
