Matt & Kim make me happy

Posted in music with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2009 by JD

Two things you need to know about Matt & Kim:

1) They have got to be the happiest musical duo I have ever seen and you can tell why when you hear the music they play. I challenge you to not smile when you listen to it.

2) Kim is  beyond cute and I have a celebrity crush on her (sorry Matt).  That big smile and those pearly whites make me all twitterpated. (I know she probably wouldn’t be classified as a celebrity, but she is in a band and I can’t have real crushes because I am married, so it has to be a celebrity crush).

Be sure to watch the video above in it’s entirety because it will give you the perfect idea of what this dynamic duo is all about – Fun, happy music played by fun happy people.  Those of you in Canada probably recognize the song above from the Virgin mobile commercials which would have quickly gotten old if it weren’t for that catchy tune.  They recently released their 2nd album, “Grand” and although not quite as bubbly as their first effort, it will equally bring a big grin to your face with each listen.

Matt & Kim are the perfect band to help bring you into spring and prepare for those long summer days having nothing but fun in the sun.  Jump on the bandwagon now folks, these two are going to explode this summer, just you watch.

Stuck for Days

I have had this song stuck in my head for the past damn near week straight. No, it’s not new but it sure is catchy. You listen to it once and it’s stuck. I’ve been repeating “Die, Die, Die…Die, Die, Die, Die, Die” in my head as I try to go to sleep at night.  Damn you Avett Brothers, damn you for writing extremely catchy alt-country-folk music that I can’t help but sing along to…and along to…and along to.

Give the album a listen if you get the chance – Avett Brother “Emotionalism”.  It has some damn catchy tunes on it and a few that may even bring a tear to your eye (if you are human).
