How excited are we to bring you freshly minted music from PETRA HADEN and JIM BIANCO. (Petra did the art above). Together they’ve made a fantastic electropop EP as HOORAY MATINEE. These two friends have natural chemistry – their songs overflow with ideas, great melodies and a spirit of fun. Think Postal-Service-Of-Monsters-and-Men-Matt-&-Kim and you’ll be in the right solar system. So perfect for soundtracks. You probably know Petra from her widely praised a capella albums covering The Who Sell Out and classic film scores (click here for a recent NPR profile). Maybe you’ve heard her in Prius ads, too? Jim became a bright light in LA indie music when he helped found the Hotel Cafe scene. He has since gone on to bigger things, appearing on Mountain Stage, Craig Ferguson, True Blood, and at the Getty Museum.
But as we were saying… HOORAY MATINEE. Yes, Hooray. Believe us, you’ll be happy to get this music.
