Matt & Kim

Matt and Kim are a duo based out of Brooklyn. Mixing drums and keys, their sound is a blend of careless, yet energetic; frivolous, yet totally enjoyable noise. Formed not so long ago, their first release was the ep titled to/from, followed by their self titled full length. Their shows are lively and they share the same unwavering enthusiasm, as evidenced by Kim below. So without further ado, give yourself a chance to get to know Matt and Kim!

1. Where did you guys meet & how long after did you form the band?

matt and i met 5 years ago in brooklyn. we started playing music together about 3 years ago. I had never played drums before but loved watching drummers or anything beat related, and matt had never played keyboards before but he found a really cool one in his neighbor's garage, we were working on all kinds of other things together (art, films) and we just work well together.

The Raveonettes

The Raveonettes have a new record out - Lust Lust Lust, following 2005's Pretty In Black, & the first two; 2002's Whip It On (the one recorded in b flat minor, with all songs under 3 minutes), and 2003's Chain Gang Of Love (also all under the 3 minute mark, but in the key of b flat major). Deriving their name from a combination of 60's girl group, The Ronettes, and a Buddy Holly tune, the Raveonettes are a Danish two piece made up of Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo. Their sound is a mixture of vintage garage rock, blended with something you might hear in a spaghetti western; perhaps Robert Rodriguez/Quentin Tarantino-esque. Either way, here's a bit of a glimpse into their elusively mysterious world, courtesy of Sune.

1. Sune has mentioned that he hates touring- why? The monotony of traveling every day can be quite uninspiring and bland. What are some examples of why one might despise touring so much? Read above. Does Sharin feel the same way? I'…
