Product Description

MATT & KIM are the real retro deal! While their upbeat dancepop is modern, their ethic is straight outta the early '80s. They tour constantly, eschew clubs for warehouses and basements, and even encourage crowd surfing. Matt & Kim are a keyboard-driven power pop duo based out of Brooklyn, New York. Made up of Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino. A winner for fans of MATES OF STATE, THE LITTLE ONES, THE DECEMBERISTS, & THE GO! TEAM. The eleven tracks on their debut clock in at a speedy twenty-nine minutes and are a quick-and- dirty crash course on Matt and Kim's enthusiastically messy music, with the anthemic "Yea Yeah" setting the pace for other raucous numbers like "5K" and "Frank."

Even thought I own this album, I can't get used to the sound of Matt And Kim. The songs feel the same, same drum, same keyboard, same monotone voice. The only good song is Yea Yeah. Really.

your cat just got hit by a car? no problem, just one track of of this album will have you dancing around the room like a cracked out kangaroo.

Brooklyn based Matt and Kim have an amazing abilitiy to get your body movin in ways you never thought possible.

do yourself and everyone else around you a favor and buy this CD, and if you have the chance see them live, you won't stop dancing for weeks.

TEN STARS!!!!!!!!

Saw them at Bonnaroo 2011, What a live show. Kim is a hard working drummer, who puts on a tremendous show. The music makes you want to get up and move.

Ever wondered what Mates of State would sound like if they'd met in junior high and Kori took a back seat on the vocals? That's Matt & Kim. Two people, drums and keyboards, and much like MoS, the lyrics don't -completely- make sense all the time but that's part of the charm. They know something you don't. The biggest difference I can see between the two are that M&K's sound is 'simpler' (That's not an insult.)

I'd been meaning to pick this up after hearing "Yea Yeah" on a podcast over two years ago. I'm kicking myself for waiting this long. This album makes you want to run around and jump on the bed and spray silly string at people. It's just feel good music like Los Campesinos!'s Sticking Fingers Into Sockets.

The only negative thing I can think of about this album, is that the songs start to all sound alike after a while. Which is not a terrible thing, really (see: Bouncing Souls).
Nearly perfect.

A good album. Sept. 10 2010

I haven't had as many of the songs grow on me as much as Matt & Kim's album "Grand". But it is still a good buy.

Matt sounds a lot like the lead singer of Thursday (Geoff Rickly). i did happen to notice the faux-British accent(if that's what it must be called); it really didn't bother me. its a style thing i suppose. i really enjoy their unique sound as well as the courage it takes to put out a record with so little working knowledge of their instruments. that takes a lot of guts. i've been playing guitar for years and couldn't imagine putting out any recordings yet. take this for what it is and don't read too much into it.
