The ink hadn’t even dried yet on my recently penned Live 105’s Top 20 Bay Area Bands of 2011 blog before my NEW favorite local band of 2012 serendipitously landed on my desk: Bay Area, meet San Francisco’s Midi Matilda!
A relatively new local project who met in college, Midi Matilda consists of North Bay native Logan and Skyler, a Texan product who moved to the Bay when he was 15
And though i’ve only heard a few tracks from the band to date, including the fantastic nu-gaze-synthpop gem DAY DREAMS, this two-piece has already won the affection of me AND several reputable music blogs and magazines, including The Owl Mag, Neon Gold,
Midi Matilda recorded their material at both of their respected apartments and also utilized one of the best recording studios on the West Coast –Tiny Telephone in SF’s Potrero Hill neighborhood- and are already excitedly optimistic about new music coming down the pike saying “We really feel our next song will blow the doors off anything we have put out yet!”
The ingenious music video for DAY DREAMS was recorded in-studio and then cleverly projected over hundreds of surfaces throughout the city of San Francisco and Berkeley. (and already has over 7,000 hits)
Look for the boys to hit up Cafe Du Nord this March and tune-in this Sunday night on Radio Soundcheck as we’ll debut their music on Live 105!
