Here’s something Matt And Kim should do during every show: Distribute balloons to everyone in the audience, and then get everyone to throw those balloons up in the air when the first note hits. The duo were once the most reliably fun warehouse band in Brooklyn, and now that they’re the type of group who shows up on late-night TV every time they’ve got a new album out, they’re still finding ways to get that energy across. They tried the balloon trick last night on Kimmel, and it looked awesome. Matt And Kim released the new album New Glow earlier this month, and even if you’re not a fan of the new songs (and I’m not), they’re just fun as hell to watch live. Below, watch them play “Get It,” and, as an online bonus, “Make A Mess.”
New Glow is out now on Harvest.
