For over 15 years, San Diego-based twin brothers Jared and Jonathan Mattson have performed psychedelic jazz music as Mattson 2. Aquarium Drunkard describes their chemistry as "telepathic—effortlessly and mesmerizingly in-sync." Last heard here in collaboration with Chaz Bear (aka Toro y Moi), they return as a duo for Paradise with a new twist: the Mattsons are singing for the first time. Warm, melodic, hypnotic, the sun-kissed material manages to conjure carefree moods while exploring heavier themes of loss and longing. The record sees release on Bear's Company Records.Coverage on music sites Official website
