Matt & Kim

Matt and Kim! If you never heard of them, don't worry! Most people haven't! Now, this isn't a post of "oh em gee, im so hepster i new bout matt&kim b4 u did". No, fuck that. I love introducing people into new music regardless of it's popularity. They got some spotlight when their video "Daylight" was featured on MTV. It's quite a neat video/song (link:Matt&Kim-Daylight). I'll admit, they were somewhat of a one hit wonder in the mainstream media. Nonetheless, their music brilliant. It's very upsy, joyous and makes you feel pumped. I learned about Matt and Kim around 06' when I went to a show in San Diego. It was at a real small venue called Che Cafe, they were the headliners, mind you this was way before they made it on MTV. Anyway, people mainly went to see Matt&Kim, their set was amazing. They are so much fun live, I remember they covered DeadPrez-Hip-Hop,  it was brilliant. I have yet to find a video/song of this cover by Matt&Kim. The fact that it was a small venue made it better, people were cramped together, jumping,dancing, singing along, throwing their fists up in the air. If you ever get a chance to see them live, you should, I can vouch that it will be a very fun show!

Heres some live footage of the show I went to back in 07'. Enjoy
