Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). A great modern jazz album with rifts that nod to the masters.
Agar has also found the Mattson 2 teaming up with Farmer Dave Scher (who has worked with Interpol, Kurt Vile and Vetiver). Scher’s musical capabilities bring a unique (and pivotal) symphonic layer to the diverse Agar sound vistas. Maryann Tran brings her unique hypnosis of wordless sounds that are both euphoric and Easternly majestic. All of this adds up to make a layer cake of moody sounds, hypnotizing effects, and otherworldly innovations.
Agar, the Mattson 2’s fourth album, does just that. Combining natural guitar tones with loops, luscious soundscapes, pedal-steel drones (played by friend and collaborator Farmer Dave Scher), the album features unorthodox song forms and countless sonic surprises. We caught up with Jared Mattson on the heels of a massive tour the twins had just finished to support Agar, and asked him to describe his guitars, loops, outrageous effects, and innovative approach to recording.

The Mattson 2 are California-based twin brothers who, today, are premiering a track off their upcoming surf-jazz album, Agar. Dif Juz puts guitar and drum magic in motion for a minute cruise down the Pacific Coast Highway-lingering flecks of sun burning off the horizon. The album comes out on CD and digitally September 16, then on vinyl November 11, via Um Yeah Arts.
