Blahvocado – “Gold Park”


Blahvocado is the nom de plume of Matt Pignatore, who writes and records everything in his apartment in Burlington, Vermont. The music itself may be recorded in close quarters, but “Gold Park” is a spacious track that combines atmospheric synths with acoustic guitar and a tight groove. Pignatore’s wistful vocals tie everything together as he sings about a failed relationship and its after effects. A line like,”You were gold in that moment/everybody said you were,” rings with the angst of teenage love, but Pignatore delivers it with the weariness of someone who is wise beyond their years. This is a promising act, for sure.
