Despite a move to California from the Big Apple, Jon DeRosa has yet to find sunnier pastures, and is still singing melancholic songs spiced with tinges of hope. This outing is a tad warmer than prior releases, Bittern - Various - Vanishing Wildlife rather than evoking the spirit of beach bunnies building sandcastles, the Matchless - Aarktica - Matchless Years is suitable for trench-coated Londoners trudging through winter drizzles.
Time passes slowly and Matchless - Aarktica - Matchless Years drift by sleepily. It's meditative and yawn-producing, with limited choruses, and nothing jarring or even grabbing, making for, at best, non-intrusive background mood music. Formerly edgy, now DeRosa sounds bland. It's not that there's anything especially wrong with Matchless Years by any means -- in fact, it's slightly more polished than his former releases -- but it's also not nearly as emotional and charming as, say, No Solace in Sleep or even Bleeding Light.
Add the fact that three of the eight songs are directionless instrumentals, and you've got yourself a short little sleeper. Call it a napper.
