Block Party Band of the Day!

Matt & Kim vs. Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head

How do you like your pop? Spazzy, coupled, wide-eyed, grinning keys and drums punk pop? Or uniformed, youthful, bumping bubble-gum electro?

Matt & Kim are the former, a crazy-in-love duo from Brooklyn who play relentlessly upbeat, stripped down pogo anthems with sing-along hooks to spare. Check out their new video for the Flosstradamus remix of “Yea Yeah”:

Matt & Kim play the Main Stage on Friday, July 27th at 5:15pm.

Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head are the latter, a young ensemble working through their still kinda awkward novelty phase with songs about side ponytails, shaking booty, and the like. But underneath their current lyrical ephemera is some fairly advanced synth and drum machine programming. In another year, this band could be dropping some serious dance jams. For now, they’re dropping silly ones, but they’re still pretty fun. Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head play the Vera Stage on Friday, July 27th at 5:00pm.

(Advantage: Matt & Kim, by a hair)

I'd have to go with NPSH because that girl in the group is yummy looking. And, I fucking hate Matt and Kim, they're annoying, their music stupid, and nobody is yummy in that group.
