Retro soul artist Mattiel, one of many unsung talents that’s recorded locally in Atlanta with Randy Michael and Jonah Swilley’s InCrowd crew, recently had her debut 7-inch released by the savvy tastemakers at Burger Records.
A-side “Count Your Blessings” blends healthy self-affirmation with retro sounds. Flipside “Whites of Their Eyes” channels more of a blues-rock feel. To paraphrase her InCrowd collaborators’ definition of fellow local act Black Linen, both songs fit the vibe of a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack.
This, however, is just a taste. Burger has penciled in September 29th for the release of Mattiel’s first full-length album.
