Matt & Kim playing at ACL 2010
Unlike many artists out there, Matt & Kim continue to make outstanding songs in their third album "Sidewalks." Not only does their music make them amazing, but their chemistry as well. I was fortunate enough to see their show at Austin City Limits this past October. Their set includes a drum set and keyboard but don't let the size fool you, their show was engaging and the way they changed up their songs made the experience different from just listening their CD.
My personal favorite song on this new release is "Wires." I can't get enough of this song! What I like is that after about 3.5 minutes of listening, you think the song is over, but wait there's more! It finishes with such an upbeat sound that anyone's spirits can be lifted by it.
Check out their new album on iTunes, it's currently in the Top 100. It's definitely a good purchase; every song has the effect of getting you pumped up!
