"...Houston’s We Were Wolves lean toward Queens of the Stone Age on 2015 EP Ruin Your Weekend. – Michael Toland [image-6-right] Matthew Logan Vasquez, She Sir..."
"...Matthew Logan Vasquez 8:20pm, Bungalow For the past decade, Matthew Logan Vasquez fronted Delta Spirit, which mixed indie rock and Americana to critical acclaim. Late last year, Vasquez, who grew up locally, released his solo debut, The Austin EP, followed this year by full-length provocateur Solicitor Returns..."
"...Glorietta, the Matthew Logan Vasquez-led supergroup blurring the lines between party and band, releases a three-song EP, Más Glorietta, Friday on local imprint Nine Mile. That day, they'll be featured on NPR's World Cafe..."
"...One of the few Austin projects worthy of the term "supergroup," Glorietta possesses considerable intrigue. Coming into Pickathon, the band – led by Matthew Logan Vasquez and featuring Ramirez, Adrian Quesada, Wild Child's Kelsey Wilson, Noah Gundersen, Jason Robert Blum, Brendan Bond, and Judson Johnson – had only played four shows..."
"...Thus far, SXSW has posted up a strong year representing the local scene and that trend continues with this week’s announcement of 30 acts hailing from the 512. Journeyman guitarist Ian Moore has been added alongside rapper Kydd Jones, Delta Spirit frontman Matthew Logan Vasquez, synth explorers Casual Strangers, country ace Paul Cauthen, math-folk act Hikes, and River Jones & Lorelei Linklater, the latter famous for acting in her father’s film Boyhood..."

"...Wed. 15, Hotel Vegas, 11:45pm "Why do I wake up in the night screaming?" demands Christopher Nordahl in a hoarse shout on "Christian Ideas." Brace for grating post-punk built on a melodic foundation but punctured by off-kilter guitar lines, pummeling drums, and strange, broken, vocal phrasing. – Libby Webster Matthew Logan Vasquez..."
"...Sabbatical from both Delta Spirit and indie supergroup Middle Brother, Matthew Logan Vasquez follows up last year's Austin EP with a full-length as lively and invested as anything he's recorded. A native Texan who spent time in California and New York, Vasquez utilizes Solicitor Returns as an outlet for his copious songwriting output..."
"...Matthew Logan Vasquez's hiatus from Delta Spirit came to satisfying fruition on last year's debut solo LP Solicitor Returns, pivoting subtly from his band's indie rock Americana to an entirely self-actualized approximation of Neil Young – grungy, melodious, and piano-accented. Sophomore follow-up Does What He Wants fails to cohere by refusing to settle on any consistent point..."
"...Propelled by an inebriated lightbulb moment, Delta Spirit's Matthew Logan Vasquez gathered up a six-part supercrew with Austinites Kelsey Wilson (Wild Child), David Ramirez, Adrian Quesada, and Jason Robert Blum, plus Washington stater Noah Gundersen. Over a week in New Mexico, the assembly whipped up a warm, smoky Americana debut..."
"...Matthew Logan Vasquez..."
"...Today, organizers announced more than 100 acts filling out the four-night run, including Stubbs’ Thursday kickoff show featuring the Canvas People, Summer Salt, Abram Shook, and Slomo Drags, and two Friday must-sees, White Denim at Cheer Up Charlies and Israel Nash at Empire Control Room. The lineup also boasts the Octopus Project, Matthew Logan Vasquez, Residual Kid, Golden Dawn Arkestra, Capyac, and Radioactivity...."
"...Matthew Logan Vasquez 2015 cover story..."
"...As always, the event, organized by Utopia-raised Austin resident Travis Sutherland, pulls heavily from the capital city’s musical masses. Two regulars, transcendental folk dreamers the Deer and roots rockers the Wheeler Brothers, lead a cadre of local artists including cold-as-ice rhythm and blues crew the Greyhounds, Delta Spirit frontman Matthew Logan Vasquez, electronic body-movers Capyac, vibey songstress Suzanna Choffel, and post-genre pop one-man-band Mobley, plus Shane Cooley, the Halfways, Shawman, Jinx McGee, and Cowboy Irie...."
"...Matthew Logan Vasquez at Hotel Vegas..."
"...4) Matthew Logan Vasquez, Solicitor Returns..."
"...Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen lead the ninepiece live explosion that aced last year's debut Cokomo. Delta Spirit frontman Matthew Logan Vasquez returns to native Texas and goes solo with this year's Solicitor Returns, an impressive psych-inflected set of folk rock and sharp ballads..."
