[new]: Matt & Kim – Now

By Will Oliver, September 4th 2012

Matt & Kim’s release date for new album Lightning is creeping closer as it will be released October 2 via FADER Label. The band already shared the awesome first single “Let’s Go”, and now they’re offering another track for free download on their facebook page.

It’s the bouncy “Now”, that slowly transforms into a rather epic large scale little anthem by mid- journey of the song. It’s Matt & Kim being playful and catchy, doing there thing, and probably putting tons of smiles on people’s faces – which is what they’re all about if you have ever seen them live.

Download “Now” below, and look out for the rest of the album on October 2. It’s now available to pre-order on iTunes.

Matt & Kim @ Catalpa Music Festival (July 29, 2012)

By Will Oliver, July 30th 2012 — with 1 comment



Matt & Kim played McCarren Park Pool in 2008 and I went as a fan right before I finally made the move to start the site. I remember going mainly cause it was a free show, but also because I heard about an exciting duo that was supposed to be fun to see live. Matt & Kim impressed me a great deal that day, but the way the crowd was enamored by their presence was what really struck me.

Now we are 4 years past that point, and wow, these two have come a long way since then. Not too much has changed though. The duo are still cheerfully fun live, and the crowd still eats out of their hand. While they may not be my favorite band in the world, there’s no denying that these guys are just plain old fashioned fun live. I don’t know how anyone could sit through their live show and not have a blast. They’re just contagious.

[new]: Matt & Kim – Let’s Go

By Will Oliver, June 25th 2012 — with 2 comments

“Let’s Go” is the new single from Matt & Kim’s upcoming album, Lightning.

It’s a glammed up bouncy single that sounds like what it is, a polished single from two of the happiest musicians on this planet. The song is perfect for a summer afternoon, definitely something that could cure any bad day.

The album isn’t due until the fall, but this single should get you through the summer. The band have released a “official first listen” video that features some incredible basketball ballhandling from Pat The Roc. Watch/Listen below.

By Will Oliver, August 31st 2010 — with 5 comments

A few days ago Matt & Kim announced that their new album is called Sidewalks and it will come out on 11/12. Today we have been graced with the ultra happy sounds of their new single “Cameras”. I’m sold. It’s a catchy little number and it’s going to be stuck in many heads soon. Get ready to see tons and tons of remixes of it in the next few weeks.

This is a happy little anthem from these two ultra happy Brooklynites, and I’d be down to belt this live.

Stream it below via 107.7 The End.

They no longer write songs folks. They write anthems:
