In this episode Jonathan and and Jared play an acoustic version of ‘Black Rain’ , track no. 2 from their latest album, Feeling Hands.

In this series of So To Speak we focus on The Mattson 2, a twin brother guitar and drums jazz duo from San Diego.  Like most young musicians today their interests span a wide spectrum.  Their playing can go from traditional jazz to avant-garde serialism.  Jared Mattson plays electric guitar while brother Jonathan provides the rhythmic foundation on the drum kit.

While they have strong connection to the surf and skate community through their  collaborations  with artist/filmmaker Thomas Campbell and musical collaborations with Ray Barbee and Tommy Guerrero they explore territory outside of that world by listening to many different genres and playing  experimental and improvised musics.
