Matching Talons

Before receiving an email from this band recently, I knew little about Matching Talons. Since then, however, I've been blown away by the New Jersey act's explosive take on indie rock.

Though their sound has more in common with garage rock than anything else, it's unique in its ambient approach. That is, they avoid any tired formulas for creating distorted, grungy tunes and take their sound in another more promising and exciting direction. I'm immediately reminded of a similar act like HEALTH, artists who still appreciate rock but aren't afraid to experiment with it.

Download their two-song release for free here, and turn that shit up.
