Given the state of modern music and its fabricated pop icons, what Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 achieves is a collective music victory in a new era of progressive soundscapes. World-renowned composer/producer extraordinaire Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi, Les Sins) has teamed up with the psychedelic-jazz grooves of The Mattson 2 for an album that unifies a trio’s creativity into a refreshing project of unhinged sonic originality.
Listen to Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 “Star Stuff” music video here.
The group and the album, Chaz Bundick Meets Mattson 2, explores psychedelic, jazz, and improvisatory influences ranging from Afrofuturistic Sun Ra, to electric Miles Davis, to groove-fueled Serge Gainsbourg and The Zombies. Grounding the album are break-beats, synthesizers, acoustic strums, and guitar fuzz reminiscent of David Axelrod and Arthur Verocai. With cosmic structures, timeless influences, rich harmonies, and melodic interplays, the trio brings an intergalactic edge to both their live shows and an album worthy of repeated visits.
Madeline Kenney makes twang-hazey dream pop out of Oakland, CA. Imagine Loretta Lynn had a secret shoegaze project and a looper pedal, but sang like Beach House’s Victoria Legrand. Music to float to. Her debut Signals EP (produced by Chaz Bundick) is out now on Company Records, and her debut LP is due out in September 2017.
