Matt Scheuermann lives in Columbus Ohio and writes music under the name American War. He’s got one of the best voices I’ve ever heard (seriously). Matt also plays in this really awesome band call The Sidekicks. In 2010 Matt put out a record called “Rhetoric” and I listened to it so many times it was ridiculous (I didn’t actually think it was ridiculous I was more and more stoked every time). Symptoms is more stripped down than his previous release but is filled with beautiful, sincere songs. This is my new “late night driving by myself” record.
