Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2 just shared another track from Star Stuff! Stream "JBS" via Consequence of Sound + check out an exclusive interview with Chaz and Jonathan Mattson.
"Jonathan Mattson, drummer for the twin jazz duo The Mattson 2, had absentmindedly forgotten his drum stool for an Oakland concert in 2014. The Mattson’s friend and photographer Andrew Paynter said he knew a guy who could help out, and it just so happened to be [Chaz] Bundick. When they all met up at a cafe the next day to return the stool, Bundick and the twins clicked, and a musical relationship was born.
By the end of February 2016, the trio had recorded their new album, Star Stuff, as Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2. Out March 31st via Bundick’s own Company Records, the effort is today being previewed with a new single, 'JBS'. The nearly seven-minute track is a bluesy piece of psych-jazz, laid back and mellow like that feeling one gets after returning home from a long, joyful trip. When you’re feeling struck with a bit of well-earned exhaustion, 'JBS' is the kind of jam that reassures you it’s okay to embrace the laziness."
Star Stuff pre-orders are available now on the Company shop & iTunes.
