Mattress Financial – “40s” (Stereogum Premiere)

Mattress Financial is the solo project of Sam Rosenberg, frontman of Two Inch Astronaut, one of the first bands on Exploding In Sound Records’ roster. We’ve been fans of them for their recordings and crazy live shows, but Rosenberg on his own strips the music to same core qualities on “40s.” Over delicate acoustic guitar Rosenberg sounds almost like Elliott Smith, a quality that’s often hiding under the dissonance of his main band. Listen below.

“40s” appears on the Private Split with Fond Han out 5/20 via Exploding In Sound.
