So the boys over at Electric Mustache piqued my interest in the new Matt & Kim record yesterday by putting up this super cool new video for the first single "Lesson Learned." Turns out the rest of the new record, Grand, is great top-to-bottom. Unlike the Brooklyn duo's self-titled debut here's no "Yea Yeah," level single, but it'll probably be among my top records of 2009.
Oh, and watch the video to the very end. As Electric Mustache's Mike says, you'll never see it coming.
