The Truth About Music

"What's hot, what's not, and whats next in pop music"

Some Early Thoughts About Matt & Kim

As many of you already know, I have a certain distain for indie rockers who go out of their way to make things sound indie. It is one thing to write songs and hope one hits it big. It is a completely different animal to actively write in an indie style (MGMT on their latest album “Congratulations”).

On their latest album “Sidewalks,” Matt & Kim put on a clinic in songwriting. Their songs are written from an obvious indie perspective while effortlessly crafting possible hit singles. I’ll have more from this album later buy if you haven’t guessed, I’m enjoying it so far!!
