Self Promotion Spotlight: Matthew and the Judes

Posted by: Travis Parno (06/21/09)
This week's Self Promotion Spotlight shines on Pennsylvania's Matthew and the Judes. Matt and the gang offer relaxed indie pop tunes complete with horns, bells, and additively simple lyrics. If you're interested in getting your band featured on our little site, sign up for an AP.net account, post your information in the Self Promotion Forum, and we'll take care of the rest! Check out Greg Robson's review of Where on Earth? or head to the replies to read some more information about Matthew and the Judes.

Matthew and the Judes

It's tough to pin Matthew and the Judes into a category and perhaps that's their best quality. Vocalist/songwriter Matthew Whittle and his fellow band members write tunes that seem carefree and effortless, but are in fact deceptively complex. Greg Robson's review of Where on Earth? describes the band's sound as "a quirky, ambient strain of lo-fi, indie pop that’s off-kilter, catchy and wholly original." With one LP to their name, this unsigned act has listeners anticipating the release of their second full-lenth entitled A Happy Medium. Check out Matthew and the Judes at their myspace page.

Definitely checking them out based on the RIYLs. Anyone with NMH and oM under that RIYL: sign should be good.
