Wow. Unexpected. I think it's nice he's doing this so that his band members get some credit in public view. Like Dave Matthew's Band- same member's since like 1993 or something, but can you really name one member of his band?

Still. I liked Matt Pond PA more than the new name.

Not bad, although I never had a problem with the name Matt Pond PA. It was kinda charming.
I concur.

Huh? I also liked the name Matt Pond PA...I mean it's not a huge deal as long as I still get to hear music from them. That's key. I will kind of miss the name though. Whoever mentioned that they've had this name for a long time is right.

Also, The Dark Leaves was their side project for nearly a year. Does this mean those Fawn demos on their myspace will one day surface on a record at long last? I love Phone Fawn.

Matt Pond PA > The Dark Leaves. There was/is just something original about "Matt Pond PA" that makes it memorable (and better than the majority of new band names these days).

What the fuck. This came outta nowhere. Not a bad name, but not better than the original...i guess my reaction is 'oh. ok.'

I'll still refer to all the releases up until now as MPPA when I talk about it though...

I guess the name isn't that bad, it kinda has an interesting double meaning, which is kinda cool. But as everyone else has asked... why change the name now?
