With an arsenal of elaborate yet quirky acoustic and electronic music, all accented by full production, Matt & Toby are truly one of todayís most unique tastemakers. But just because the Seattle-based band is brand new doesnít mean members Matt Carter and Toby Morrell arenít already familiar to fans. In fact, both guys have spent eleven years and continue to be members of the highly influential, nearly gold selling Emery, a heavy rock act at its core, but one with an occasionally softer, more melodic side. Matt & Tobyís self-titled debut on Tooth & Nail finds the pair clearly making an individual statement, starting with experimental sonic textures that never forsake pop sensibility. Though the duo is truly original in their own right, the ten track collection could be considered an unconventional blend of Ben Folds, David Bazan (Pedro The Lion) and Coconut Records (the latest venture from Phantom Planetís Jason Schwartzman).
