Don't Slow Down By Matt & Kim

Matt And Kim (a/k/a Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino) have a new album Grand. It is filled with Vermont-recorded BKLYNsynthpop. Get ready for handclaps everyone. First off, this one is less punky, more mid tempo. I am kind of interested in hearing how some of the songs will sound live. Plus, I must say I am surprised that the album doesn't come preloaded with remixes (note: there is one "outro mix"), but I guess we will have to wait for the remixes in the coming months. Anyway, the new album looks like this:

Matt & Kim Grand

"Don't Slow Down" ( mp3)
"Good Ol' Fashioned Nightmare" ( mp3)

Streamable: Grand (spinner album stream)

More? Interview links? I has them. Read the Brooklyn Based interview (here). Topics covered... health insurance, twin beds, The White Stripes, Todd P, day jobs. Read the p'fork interview (here). Topics covered... selling out, Rick Rubin, performing on the floor vs the stage, Fugazi.

Tonight at the Music Hall of Williamsburg it's the record release show. As for the Secret Special Guests, here is my lame attempt at a guess:

Ninjasonik (prolly)
Team Robespierre (prolly)
Flosstradamus (maybe)
Parts & Labor (maybe)

Hopefully, there will be no Converse or Mountain Dew banners covering the "slippery slope" that is the stage.
