a few months ago, when i asked visual artist angie mason to kindly share some of her favorite musicians, she mentioned matson jones.

after researching angie’s recommendation and listening over and over again to their debut, they too, have become a special favorite of my own. living in ft. collins, colorado, consisting of two cellists/vocalists, one upright bassist and a drummer, this four-piece presents eclectic layers of chaotic intensity that distinctly possesses their own artistic spirit and power. together they have made raw music that certainly proves in the best way possible, insanity does equal creativity.

ive got people to see
and places that i need to burn down
and secrets that i need to burn out of my head

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
