The moniker ML Wah has caught a lot of sides of Matt LaJoie — from his noisier folk moments to stark piano compositions that cropped up last year. It’s served as a side of Matt’s music in flux and now he swerves once more, delivering one of his few vocal records of late outside of Ash & Herb. “Searching” pads down the moonlight path, a slight sway of R&B and AM radio strum slipping into the mix. The song was recorded at home and it has a private press quality to it, but that adds to the intimacy and warmth of the song. Whether this is a one-off or a new direction adds to the mystery of Flower Room’s aura. It’s always best to keep an eye on the Bandcamp to see what’s brewing and find gems like this.
