Matthew Squires & The Learning Disorders have only been together a couple years, but the terrific “Where the Music Goes to Die” marks their fourth release since 2013. The band really comes into their own on this 12-track gathering of psych-tinged indie folk.

Matthew Squires CDSquires is a dynamic singer/songwriter and is the dominating presence on “Where the Music Goes to Die.” He’s composed an album’s worth of uniformly strong tunes that figure to raise the Austin, Texas-based outfit’s profile considerably.

While you’d be hard-pressed to find a bad song in the 44-minute bunch, Squires & The Learning Disorders shine particularly bright on keepers “Echo,” “Trophy Song,” “American Trash,” the title track, “Plato’s Cave,” “Some Corny Love Song (Devotional #2)” and “A Strange Piece.” I can’t wait to hear more from this up-and-coming band.
