Casey’s DJ Pick of the Week
Matthew Bean, who goes by the stage moniker Sneaky Bones, just released his fourth album Little Words. Bean released his first album in 2015, accompanying it with a European tour. “Once I booked my first tour across Europe in 2017, I was hooked,” Bean remarks. He speaks on the lyrics of his newest album saying, “Even underneath all the current chaos, the world is [messed up], and I feel very lucky to be able to create, so I’m going to do just that––make records and create.”
“Outlaw” is the second track on Sneaky Bones’ newest release Little Words. The adored folk artist starts and ends the song with strong 30 second bass riffs: “We fired up the machine and out came the heaviest drums/bass/acoustic guitar song I’d ever heard,” Bean said. Bean refers to “Outlaw” as a “dynamic and askew version of rock and roll.”
