At this point, vern matz should need no introduction around these pages. What always amazes me is how they release their songs and don’t force a whole release celebration or cycle, but just share the song and let it do the speaking for them.

“getting older” is the latest such release, another poignant and sincere gorgeous folk offering. It is wonderfully adorned with a lovey synth atmosphere and a compelling feeling of love and loss, the perfect melancholic spirit that captures the song’s topic of “being sick & Minnesota winter.”

Enjoy “getting older” now below.
