“There's a multitude of acoustic singer/songwriters out there, but what makes the best stand out, in my mind, is the ability to convey strong feeling with a minimum of instrumentation. Puckett succeeds tremendously. The seven songs [on ‘Sad Little Car’] are quiet and moody yet undeniably catchy in ways that nods to Puckett's rock sensibilities.” -Jeff Marsh (www.adequacy.net)

“… (on) an EP which showcases leader Matthew Puckett’s acoustic work… ‘Sad Little Car’ and ‘Come Here Honey’ are from an indie film, ‘Particles of Truth’ (Starring Gale Harold from Showtime’s ‘Queer as Folk’, due in theaters 2004), and are affecting tunes whose bittersweet hooks and wistful lead vocals make for a compelling listen.
