The Mattson 2
The Mattson 2
If you could soundtrack the jangle of the sea and the jazz of the surf, The Mattson 2 would most certainly be the composers. The identical twin guitar and drums duo are truly a marvel of jazz-rock orchestration and arrangement. The duo shimmers and shakes with the soaring modern wizardry of Jared Mattson's untamed, layered guitars and Jonathan Mattson's tribal jazz hard-bop drumming. They channel the gorgeously hypnotic gods of surf, sun, and neon-punk- jazz of our modern universe, evoking evolved realms of experimentalism, rhythm, and story. The identical twin’s deep telepathic kinship navigates colorful forms of beautiful weirdness and exotic landscapes of layered improvisation, transcending the concept of modern musical performance. They have toured relentlessly throughout Japan, China, Brazil, Paris, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Finland, The Netherlands, and the United States. The Mattson 2 have Bachelor’s and Masters of Fine Arts degrees in music from University of California San Diego, and University of California Irvine respectively. Mattson 2 have collaborated/shared the stage with Chaz Bundick, Toro Y Moi, Badbadnotgood, Ray Barbee, Tommy Guerrero, Cornelius, Chocolat & Akito Katayose, Silver Apples, Money Mark, Thomas Campbell, Nicole Mitchell, Mark Dresser, Farmer Dave Scher, and Tortoise members Jeff Parker, John Herndon, and John McEntire.

Sorores, the new 90-minute 2x LP from Native Harrow blows open their British Folk meets Laurel Canyon soundworld to make way for darker avant-garde folk rock, art rock edginess, sitars, west coast jazz, middle eastern rhythms, and desert psychedelia.

Following the release of Sorores, the duo traveled across the US and Canada, performing 80 concerts on the Sorores Tour. In the fall, after supporting shows with The Cactus Blossoms, Native Harrow ended the year with the 70 concert World Gets Quiet Tour.

Native Harrow began 2018 with more than 100 performances throughout North America on the New Year Eyes Tour running from January to May, stopping only for a week in March to record their third album at Reliable Recorders in Chicago. This LP, Happier Now, was helmed by producer/drummer Alex Hall (JD McPherson, Cactus Blossoms, Pokey LaFarge) and will be released in early 2019.
