The beloved indie couple Matt and Kim are legendary for their over-the-top energetic live shows as PopMatters reported on last summer. So it was a different scene at the KCRW studio October 11th when the band played a set before noon on “Morning Becomes Eclectic.” Instead of playing side by side on a stage, they offered up their upbeat music with Matt at his keyboards across the room from Kim, who was encased in an isolation booth with her drums feeling quite removed from everything. As Kim played with hair flying backwards from the kit in the confined space, Matt became sweetly concerned about her discomfort even while singing “lock me up” during their first hit, “Yea Yeah”. He then decided their next song “I Wanna” should be changed to “I Wanna Get Kim Out of That Closet”. The two are just off a tour opening up for Blink 182 and My Chemical Romance, which included a stop at the iconic Hollywood Bowl. During the interview with host Jason Bentley, they discussed the difference between this experience and playing in front of only their own fans. They also revealed plans to go back in the studio this January to begin recording album number four. Watch or listen to the session at the link here.
