"The first time, I meet Matt Lutz, he's in a Mission district bar reading copy of an Anthony Burgess book. This is a pretty good first impression, and somewhat intimidating one. However, Lutz's confidence is no where near bordering on arrogance, and you begin to get the sense that he just really playing music. It just so happens that he is also really good. I first came in contact with his music earlier this year, when his band The Herms was generating buzz around the city with their debut, Record Machine. The fresh take on indie garage rock earned them a slot Live 105's BFD, alongside Echo and the Bunnymen, the Strokes, Franz Ferdinand and several others. Lutz was waiting on Record Machine's release, he hooked with producer Scott Tusa to work on a solo record. The resulting record - Seesaw allowed him to indulge in pretty melodies, acoustic guitar and bossa nova. Boasting one of the quintessential rock voices, which has drawn comparisons to Lou Reed and David Bowie, Lutz manages the unique ability to take on new without having it sound forced. Far from a series of experiments, Seesaw compelling record that at points rivals many of Record Machine's best songs." - Will Benham.
