Massachusetts native Matt Nathanson is known for being, dare we say it, an Indie Rock Romeo. The man has a way of pulling at the heartstrings, from his 2009 hit “Come on Get Higher” to his new Daytrotter cover of California faves The Mountain Goats’ “Love Love Love.” Nathanson can seamlessly take the most insignificant glance that a woman gives him from across a room and craft an engaging and quite beautiful song about it.

His cover of “Love Love Love,” much like his other music, is an understated acoustic gem. He keeps very true to the original, but adds a bit of Nathanson charm. The song highlights his deep and warm voice as the slow strumming of the acoustic guitar compliments lines like “Some moments last forever/some flare out with love love love.” (via Daytrotter)
