Iíve seen Matt play a ton of stuff, and everything was solid gold. The dude is full of great ideas. His latest project is I LOVE CATS! a noisy garage rock band ala the Coachwhips. He even has one of those awesome microphones that distorts like crazy. Every time I see him play he has a new drummer because Jon always ends up needing to work. This means that the day before the show Matt has to show a drummer what to play and then the next day we (the audience) is in for a complete surprise when Matt busts out an entirely new set of songs that are all completely awesome. Somehow he can take everything that is great about the Marquette music scene, all the passion and nonchalant-ness, and join it with garage rock riffs that were bestowed upon him from the gods to create a whole new ball game. In other words, get ready to rock.

If you liked "Vol. 2" prepare to have your mind blown. I Love Cats! are in full effect on this awesome 7". Matt showed up in Stevens Point with these records and they all said MOST EXCELLENT on them and I was like "OH CRAP!" Best surprise ever! These four songs were recorded for their ill fated debut tour and its a shame it didn't go better because I Love Cats! were tighter than ever. Now a three piece, I Love Cats! will tear up your record player with their vinyl melting garage rock and totally awesome next level reverb vocals that are practically an instrument unto themselves. I always knew these guys were going to do great things, I just didn't think it was going to be so soon!

Vol. 2 is the first "real" recordings of I Love Cats! and it rules. The tape is full of noisy basement "garage" rock echo jams that transcend the earlier Coachwhips homage I Love Cats! started out with. Wild drums, singing saws, and fuzzed out vocals make this tape a real keeper. Get it while its hotttttttttttttt.
