Matson Jones was a Colorado quartet that featured two cellos, two vocalists, standup bass, and drums. Martina Grbac and Anna Mascorella most often play their cellos like wrangling rhythm guitars, lingering one's snaking melody on the churning tone of the other and periodically locking them together to match wits and volume with drummer Ross Harada and bassist Matt Regan. This combination creates a sound of eerie cellos moving at a rapid pace, shadowed by the sound of a deep standup bass and all being pushed along by the sound of attacking, steady drums.
