Matt Nathanson’s new album Show Me Your Fangs – his tenth studio recording – delves deeper and further into the complexities and observations of everyday life than any of his previous albums. Songs such as “Giants,” “Bill Murray,”
“Adrenaline,” “Washington State Fight Song,” and the title track tell vivid stories touching on the overall theme of self-identity and how we choose to reveal ourselves. These vignettes are all offered wrapped in richer, musical textures with Nathanson’s signature seductive hooks. In as much as these songs have a solemn message, leave it to Nathanson to offer the perfect counter balance with the album’s new single “Gold In The Summertime” with its sultry ‘70s soul groove.
Show Me Your Fangs will be released October 2nd on Vanguard Records but starting tomorrow, July 31st, fans can pre-order the album via iTunes and www.mattnathanson.com and instantly receive a download of “Giants.”
To celebrate the release of Show Me Your Fangs, Matt Nathanson will kick off an acoustic North American fall tour beginning September 28th in Boston, MA through October 30th in San Diego, CA. Full list of tour dates below. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 31st and each ticket purchased will include a download of Show Me Your Fangs upon release.
Matt shares, “I’m heading out on a super intimate, acoustic North American club tour this fall. After the last few summers of playing big places (which has ruled, btw), and bashing it out with electric guitars, I’ve been missing just playing acoustic guitar and telling stories. So, I’m leaving the rhythm section at home and Aaron [Tap] and I are gonna bust out for the month of October, troubadour-style.”

Matt Nathanson's tenth studio album, 2015's Show Me Your Fangs, finds the Massachusetts-born artist expanding his textured, literate singer/songwriter pop with a robust, exuberant production style. The album follows up his love letter to his adopted home of San Francisco, 2013's The Last of the Great Pretenders. As with that album, Show Me Your Fangs reveals an attention to emotional detail, but with more of an ear toward crafting hooky, often dance-oriented pop anthems. A folkie at his core, Nathanson is an acoustic-guitar-and-notepad sort of songwriter, and his best albums reflect this kind of traditionalism. However, he's never been afraid to flesh out his songs in the studio, bringing in keyboards, drum machines, and sundry instruments as needed. That said, Show Me Your Fangs is easily Nathanson's most adventurous album to date and successfully balances his acoustic songwriter skills with his grand pop inclinations. Helping Nathanson achieve this goal are a handful of pop and R&B-savvy producers including Rob Kleiner (Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Sia, the Weeknd), Jonny Coffer (Leona Lewis, Tinie Tempah, Naughty Boy), Azeem, and Jake Sinclair. Rather than the "too many cooks" analogy, the collaborative process seems to have worked, and cuts like the Afro-pop-inflected "Giants," with its kinetic mix of steel drums, horns, and organ, the '70s soul-infused "Gold in the Summertime," and the bittersweet, falsetto-steeped "Playlists & Apologies" make for a remarkably cohesive listen. Of course, longtime Nathanson fans will also be happy to find that he hasn't abandoned his singer/songwriter soul, and tracks like the confessional "Washington State Fight Song" and the sweetly fantastical "Bill Murray," in which he dreams that he and the ghostbustin' actor take a bonding road trip "from Boston to Japan/Blasting old Van Halen," retain all of the quirky, personal minutiae that make his songs so affecting. --AllMusic Review by Matt Collar
