From the salvaged sounds of American juke joints, back porches, honky tonks and rock clubs, The Suitcase Junket conjures an entirely new sound. The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz: artist, tinkerer, swamp yankee, one man band. His worn voice rises over the grind of a tube-amped dumpster guitar, veering unexpectedly into crescendos of wild overtone and throat singing. His set lists are made of original rock anthems, mountain ballads, blues manifestos and dance hall festivity, played on instruments built of broken bottles, twisted forks, dried bones, gas cans, shoes, saw blades, a toy keyboard, and an overhead compartments worth of luggage. Lorenz employs his rig in the service of songs that are rootsy, melodic, full of meaning--confronting with playfulness and handcraft a world that could so easily buckle under its burden of technology and ambition.
