Emperor X Saturday, February 21, 2009
One-man-band Chad Matheny, aka Emperor X, considers the minutiae of everything from "nutria and field mice" to files "sent as an attachment / but Friendster lost it." Matching this, Emperor X crafts an inimitable lo-fi pop sound and rich mastery of samples that include banjo, piano, fuzzy guitar, layered background voices, and New Order-era tom sounds. Most importantly, he distinguishes himself with a promising concoction of sincerity and excitement. Matheny hails from Jacksonville, FL for his first appearance on Airplay.
