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."

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.
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).
