Fashioned in tall mod suits and stylized blond locks, the internationally praised duo, Mattson 2, consists of twin brothers Jared Mattson on Guitar and loops and Jonathan Mattson on the Drums.

Mattson 2 is signed to the groundbreaking and stylish Santa Cruz-based label, Galaxia Records, which has released side project records by John Herndon from legendary post rock band Tortoise, indie hero Will Oldham from Bonnie Prince Billy and beats aficionado/artist Tommy Guerrero among others. In March 2007, Mattson 2 released a record titled Ray Barbee Meets The Mattson 2 in Japan, a collaboration melding the stylistic music of the Mattson 2 with the smooth sounds of Ray Barbee, who first gained wide acclaim as one of the first famous African-American skaters in the 80s and later as a musician.

After visiting Tokyo on tour, the album soon earned Mattson2 a top 10 ranking on iTunes Japan under Alternative Music. Mattson 2’s upcoming United States album release will again feature work with Ray Barbee, as well as collaboration with John McEntire of Tortoise and The Sea and Cake; Tommy Guerrero; keyboardist Money Mark, who has worked with the Beastie Boys and others.
