Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[’80S ROCK] Matt Wertz’s new album, Heatwave, plays like a ’80s time capsule. Lead single “Get to You” is so hopped up on the Me Decade rock sound that the video even includes dance battles and way too much spandex and neon colors to be healthy. With all the appearances by beat machines on the album—to say nothing of the largely upbeat pop structures—you halfway expect some reference to Kenny Loggins, E.T. or Slinkies to show up in his lyrics. Congratulations, nostalgics: Matt Wertz is going to make your year.
