The album’s first single, “Jeff Goldblum,” is a play on the real-life crush that Brown has had on the actor. In the song, Brown meets a Goldblum look-alike and the song and story evolve from there, with a series of clever lines over some tasty synths reminiscent of the early work of the Cars. It’s fun and hooky and easily should turn more music fans on to the band. And who knows, maybe Jeff Goldblum himself could be one of them?
The indie rock outfit Mattiel, named for the band’s singer, Mattiel Brown, began recording a few years back in Atlanta and has released two albums thus far. Their recently announced third album, Georgia Gothic (ATO Records), due out in March, just may catapult them to the next level.
