I haven't listened to all of it yet, but figured I'd get the ball rolling.

The album Collages is up on Spotify.

From reading this interview: https://www.pinkfloydz.com/other-exhibi ... t-gilmour/ it seems that he has released another album 'The Grey' which isn't on Spotify.

He's also been a member (still is?) of the band Patient Wolf.



The songs that I sampled are not wonderful. I prefer the Patient Wolf song to the solo songs I sampled.

Of his solo songs, 'Brave' appears to be designed to sound like PF.

His sister Alice sang harmony on at least one song on The Grey; she was born during the recording of Animals, he was born during the recording of A Momentary Lapse of Reason.

I will say, his voice sounds very similar to Chris Martin of Coldplay - who have certainly had a few Floydish moments in an otherwise very "poppy" career (let's say, "Square One" and "Midnight").

Matt's song "Sunset" borrows some of the melody of "Fat Old Sun"


I also came across him covering "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" at SXSW. Interesting that the newest album came out in March, but David waited until a two days ago to say, "This is my son Matt Gilmour's recent album, Collages. Why don’t you give it a listen?"

The song "Fight" reminds me of Nick Laird-Clowes' "Mayday" that featured DG and Guy Pratt:
