Full disclosure: Matt Sanderlin has posted reviews at “Hear! Hear!” This new song, however, was too good to ignore. Off his upcoming The Homemade EP, “The Order” merges the songwriter’s deep-seeded love of Fountains of Wayne’s melodic structures with a folk arrangement deeply focused on its varied layers. Opening with bare guitar, the song builds to include lightly picked banjo along with mandolin and harmonized vocals, all tied together to make something akin to Bon Iver if he’d come up playing the seventies Bakersfield scene.
