Comprised of brothers Dave Taha (guitar / vocals) and Matt Taha (bass / backing vocals), and childhood friend Nick Riley (drums),Cleveland’s Filmstrip is a band that has grown together both literally and figuratively. Interpersonal intimacy coupled with years of incessant self-booked touring, is the recipe for an album that sounds at once both completely new.

Though heavily rooted in DIY culture, Filmstrip is a band whose sound has evolved well past their simple punk rock origins. Imagine if the Meat Puppets (another brother band) circa 1985 teamed up with the indie-psych-folk stylings of Pink Mountaintops, and was informed by an upbringing heavily steeped in the Maximum Rock n Roll ethos. Do this and you can begin to approximate the beautifully fractured take on the American Songbook presented here on Moments of Matter.
