In today’s episode, we sat down to chat with guitarist/songwriter Matt Berry (@cfrequency ) about @thestereorock ‘s last LP titled Rewind + Record, which was released on @fueledby back in June of 2002. Many themes and musical moves are present on this record, but at its core is the belief in one’s art and power of letting go of people or things that weigh you down.
