With their shared DNA and profound connection, the Mattson twins are unlike any band you've seen before. 
Washington Post

The twin-brother jazz duo are experts at channeling the sounds of light and ease, and there’s something almost alchemical about their mutual precision. 
– Pitchfork

It is LA jazz via the psychedelia-lite of Mac DeMarco and Tame Impala. It’s complexities are often hidden away beneath deceptively simple sounding riffs and refrains. 
– Loud and Quiet

While the two prove to be stellar songwriters, it’s their extended jams and vibe-setting that make this such an enticing listen.

The Mattson 2’s recent output includes the celebratory, disco-splashed Toro Y Moi single Millennium which appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The twin brothers cameoed in the joints video as grumpy orderlies in a mental ward high-jacking instruments from Chaz Bear’s bandmates. The 2’s previous release Paradise 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, and while Paradise doesn’t indulge in sonic excess, it does capture that breezy, sun-filled vibe. It charted Billboard at #1 Contemp. Jazz, #2 Jazz, #20 Alternative, and landed features in the Washington Post and Pitchfork. Amongst collabs w/ Ray Barbee, ‪Tommy Guerrero,‬ 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 contemporary. 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, 2002) says “there is a depth of sincerity and reverence in what the Mattson’s are doing that is unquestionable.”
