“You know things are going well when Kim has to take off her bra after the first song.” – Matt

I worry about Matt and Kim. I worry that one day, Matt and Kim will just up and decide to shed their corporeal shells and exist in the universe as pure, golden energy. They could do it, too. As soon as they show up on stage, beaming impossibly wide, standing on top of their gear and waving to audience members like every single one was a long-lost sibling, you know that these guys are cut from a different, possibly radioactive cloth. After a quick warm-up, they launched into “Good Old Fashioned Nightmare,” to which the crowd responded with unrestrained jubilation. They managed to sustain that level of joy throughout their entire set, which included a cover of DJ Kool’s “Let me Clear My Throat,” and cuts off their forthcoming record, before bringing the house down with “Daylight.” [Brightest Young Things]

Matt and Kim‘s new album Sidewalks comes out on November 2, 2010 on the FADER label. They’re currently in the midst of a tour and they’ll be playing two record release shows at Webster Hall on October 26 and 27 (Buy Tickets). You can pre-order the digital LP right now on iTunes or before every show you can hear it at one of Matt and Kim’s free in-venue listening parties.
