Matty - Déjàvu
Déjàvu is the debut solo album from Matthew Tavares, aka Matty. Produced by his good friend, the acclaimed producer / songwriter Frank Dukes, Déjàvu emerged during a period of rest for Matthew after heavy touring schedules with his former band BadBadNotGood.
Even though on the surface the record could be loosely categorized in the rock / indie camp, its dreamy psych-pop vibe evokes much richer musical inspirations. Elements of jazz, AOR, and the compositions of 'golden-era' Brazilian arrangers such as Arthur Verocai enrich the songs. For the Mr Bongo release of Déjàvu thet have included the beautiful bonus track Verocai Pt. II which was a product of the same recording sessions and rounds off the record. Though a 'solo’ release, with its songwriting, content, and themes being very personal to Matthew, the record is backed by a cast of friends, family, including BadBadNotGood members.
