You may not know this but Matt Jones rules. Jones is one of the most talented musicians in one of the biggest music hotspots in the world. He has a truly unique cadence and sound. He really is just tops, I'm not quite sure how else to explain it!
Check out the "Threadlines" composition on the 2005 Ypsilanti Records compilation for direct understanding. Washington DC sibling duo Vandaveer is touring in support of their sophomore album "Divide & Conquer," out on one of the east coast's best up-and-coming labels: Supply & Demand.
Vandaveer is the alt-folk song singing/record making/globetrotting project penned and put forth by DC-by-way-of-Kentucky tunesmith Mark Charles Heidinger.
Vandaveer has also just been named Paste Magazine's "Band of the Week!" Check it out: http://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2009/08/band-of-the-week-vandaveer.html .
