In support of his solo debut for Toro Y Moi’s Company Records, Mattson 2 guitarist Jared Mattson will play The Walrus in Murray Hill on Wednesday, June 14.
For those who’ve followed the trajectory of the Mattson 2 — the duo Jared founded with twin brother Jonathan Mattson — the warbly, psychedelic experimentations and spiritual explorations of Peanut, Mattson’s solo debut, will come as no surprise. Peanut finds Jared traversing more dream pop than the surf-inflected hard bop that first garnered his SoCal duo a national audience. On songs like the meditative “Burn Down Babylon, “Please Come Here” (which is sung in Japanese) and the Ween cover “She Wanted to Leave,” Mattson demonstrates the mastery and dexterity of his primary instrument (guitar) for which he’s long been known, a budding confidence in his vocal delivery and an imaginative approach to song structure.
