Matthew Joseph Payne

Matthew Joseph Payne is the chamber-chip-doom-folk solo project of Matt Payne (Glowing Stars, Tensegrity Nine, All My Pretty Ones, The Family Crest extended member). Steeped in dichotomies of light and dark, Matt crafts tunes that wind, travel, drone and gallop through unheard lands. His previous release, "Rodent to Rodent" was a remake of an unreleased album by his father Sparky Grinstead, with the original album performed and released in tandem.

In celebration of the financial successes of recent worldwide combat operations and political maneuvering, Matthew Joseph Payne is proud to announce his upcoming EP entitled "Gargantuan Acoustic Locator", due to be released on Friday, February 17th, 2012. Blending progressive chipmusic, folky banjo and doom music to tell the story of the integration of warfare into our modern mechanized society through the lens of American cold war propaganda. Equal parts epic slow drone and high speed chip music, "Gargantuan Acoustic Locator" promises an intense 20 minutes (or so).
