THE MATTSON 2

The Mattson 2’s recent output has found them evoking the lush and carefree soundscapes of Japanese city pop. Their 2018 release Vaults of Eternity: Japan was full of loving reinterpretations of songs by artists like Haruomi Hosono and Ryuichi Sakamoto, their latest LP Paradise captures that breezy, sun-filled vibe. It charted Billboard at #1 Contemp. Jazz and landed features in the Washington Post and Pitchfork.

Amongst collabs w/ Ray Barbee, ‪Tommy Guerrero,‬ Tony Alva, Farmer Dave (of ‪Kurt Vile‬), and ‪‪Money Mark‬ (‬of ‪‪Beastie Boys‬‬)‪, they released Star Stuff in 2017 with ‬Chaz Bear (FKA Chaz Bundick, AKA Toro Y Moi) — also #1 on Billboard contemp. jazz charts — and reinterpreted Coltrane’s legendary A Love Supreme which Ashely Kahn (author of A Love Supreme: The Creation of John Coltrane’s Classic Album) says “there is a depth of sincerity and reverence in what the Mattson’s are doing that is unquestionable.”
