With five full-length albums already under their ever-expanding belt (not to mention remix records and singles), the lively New York duo Matt and Kim have shared another fulfilling body of work this year entitled Almost Everyday. Their under-the-radar approach to the spotlight has left eager listeners ready for more, and the raucous approach to performance from these “Daylight” dynamos should draw a significant crowd who may leave the show with even more than they bargained for. Matt & Kim’s unmistakable whimsy finds a way to contribute to their ultra-relatable lyrics, molded into carefully curated metaphors, catchy chants and sing-alongs that put their supporters squarely on the same page as the artists. 2010’s Sidewalks was a surefire smash, with the hit song “Cameras” that fans know and love. In the age of social media, I guess we’ll see if there’s really “no time for cameras, we’ll use our eyes instead” during this high-octane performance from these New York electro-pop kingpins.
