167. GEORGIA GOTHIC by Mattiel
This 2022 record comes to us from Atlanta, Georgia-based duo Mattiel (named after singer Mattiel Brown). The album is a bit difficult to describe as the tracks span different sounds, from pop to country to blues to folk to even some rap (if defined loosely). Jack White was so impressed with the duo that he had them open for him on one of his tours. That was reason enough for me to check the band out. If you decide to check them out as well, here are my suggestions: 'Jeff Goldblum' (also check out the official video), 'How It Ends,' 'Subterranean Shut-in Blues' and 'Lighthouse.'
