Exclusive Premiere: Matt Pond “Love To Get Used”


Posted by on

After releasing a series of critically-acclaimed albums and earning an ardent fanbase, some artists would leave well enough alone. Not so for Matt Pond, who after releasing eight albums under the moniker Matt Pond PA, has dropped the “PA” and is releasing his first official solo album, “The Lives Inside The Lines Of Your Hand,” which is due out on February 5th.

The album features Pond’s trademark moody and subdued indie rock, with a subtle dance infused vibe. “I broke my leg last year on tour,” Pond explains in the album’s electronic press kit (EPK). “When you can’t move, you kinda wanna be able to move, to dance, or something. There’s a lot of movement on this album, and that was definitely intentional.” “Love To Get Used” is the first single from Pond’s new album. “The song specifically references the explorer side of my family,” says Pond. “An endless loop of pride and regret, battling through a history of late nights.”

Get ready to get hot and heavy with Jon Benjamin.

IFC has teamed up with Benjamin and Leo Allen (Jon Benjamin Has a Van, Review) to develop Jon Benjamin’s 100 Erotic Nights, a show filled with personal, passionate tales perfect for awkwardly watching with your family. “I always wanted to make a show that my kid could watch and I’m thrilled that IFC has given me this opportunity,” said Jon Benjamin.

The scripted comedy anthology series (currently in the pilot presentation stage) finds the man behind Sterling Archer and Bob Belcher starring in and narrating a series of lurid tales of secret passion, burning desire and ruthless betrayal sure to raise a few eyebrows. As the tales unfold, Benjamin’s narrator is overcome with confessions of love, lust, romance and sex, from the local waitress to a church nun, to a lover who’s revealed to be a robot.

“IFC is excited to dive into deadpan erotic humor, a new and untapped genre of scripted comedy for us,” said Christine Lubrano, IFC’s SVP of original programming. “As a send up of Red Shoe Diaries, these steamy and seductive tales represent a hilarious departure from familiar erotica. As our narrator and guide, Jon Benjamin’s irreverent and revealing journey will leave viewers gasping for more.”

Be sure to check back here for more updates about Jon Benjamin’s sure to be salacious series.
