Hidden Gem: Cousin Matt *chill electronic duo
I was going to post this yesterday when I was experiencing a very lazy Sunday and overall withdrawal from a long fun weekend but I got lazy, what a surprise. Anyway I'd like to introduce you to Cousin Matt, a brand new Brooklyn/Atlanta based duo that have twinkling production, seductive vocals and a dreamy feel that really caught my ear. They've only released three tracks and I just heard their latest "Soft Science" yesterday and immediately became a fan of this emerging music duo. The cousins New York and Atlanta confluence is felt, with a style and sound that brings to mind D'angelo and Sufjan Stevens, and an attitude and approach not unlike early LCD Soundsystem. Here's the three songs they've released so far. My favorites are "Pelicans" and "Soft Science". Follow Cousin Matt on facebook.
