Matt & Kim - Great Video, Great Album, Great Band

I don't watch MTV or listen to the radio, so I'm hesitant to ever call a group an "Artist to Watch", so let's just call them "Approved". The Brooklyn based duo (Matt Johnson & Kim Schifino) released their second album "Grand" in January and I've been hooked ever since. Is it Punk? Dance? Possibly Electro-Pop? Who cares? It's good. I might have kept this group in the bag, never mentioning them had it not been for this video. It's not groundbreaking, it's not visually stimulating, it's not original, yet somehow it's perfect. Pick up the album and check them out at Pitchfork this year, you know that "other" music fest in Chicago.
