Album Review: "CrazyMad, For Me" by CMAT (8/10)

Awal Distribution

Producer: Matias Téllez (except “Whatever’s Inconvenient”) 

Feisty, expressive, and original, CMAT navigates between dramatic ballads and sassy anthems as she recounts a toxic love and ensuing trauma and gradual acceptance. Country, indie rock, and ‘80s / ‘90s pop elements form a unique blend with strong vocals and decoration woven above a rich instrumental sound. CMAT brings quirky, dark-humored storytelling to the realities of being human and the evolution of overcoming challenges, wrapped inside a gorgeous musical delivery that effortlessly bends the ear. – Andrea Beenham
