Hi all! Matteo here, checking in to share with you a new album from Sonntag aka Zach Johnston. I sat at the helm as producer on this record as Zach and I arranged and recorded these songs in a flurry this past fall. Some of our dearest and most talented friends lent their spirits, including Alex Pfender (mixing, BGVs, gnar), Ian Meltzer (drums), Jesse Balmer (Director of Photography and Spirituality), and Christopher Gasser (Typeface wizard). I'm very proud of this music and would love for you to listen to these songs. Cheers! https://open.spotify.com/album/7MDa5pivyxfIfVgTmKvuaC?si=z4JWBSkySBaDDt2dYdBEQg
Friends Monica Martin has just released a new song ✨Cruel✨ Give it a listen at https://monicamartin.lnk.to/Cruel
Hi! It's Monica! TL;DR --> if you like rich vocals and and thoughtful lyrics check my new dear friend Rachel Mazer out! RR;RR --> Since I've moved to Los Angeles to pursue writing a solo record, I've been meeting a lot of lovely artists! It's IMPORTANT that I tell you that I believe 100% in the spirit, grit, and talent of Rachel Mazer, and I think you should see her perform, and support this record!
My dearest friends, may I present to you the product of long, fun(ny), and hard work of the world creator and song crafter Zach Johnston, aka Sonntag. The record is truly unlike anything I've heard, and deserves your listens, laughs, and tears. You may even hear some of us sprinkled throughout. Enjoy. https://open.spotify.com/album/3eYOd8Ai7xUparsiZxXAoW?si=5Uvlt9WoSfqayNO_6fhY4w
Hey friends, Matteo dropping in here because I wanted to give a massive shout out to one of the most badass, and wonderful humans I've ever known. My brother-in-law, Steve Leopoldo Jude Villarreal, probably claims the title of PHOX's second biggest fan (right after his sister, my amazing wife, Adriana). Steve unexpectedly left this world last week, much much too soon. If you've been to a Chicago show, you may have seen his giant, red, lion's mane bobbing around to the music. His creativity, talent, charisma, and positivity was absolutely undeniable to those who were close to him, but even to those who happened to catch a glimpse of his smile from across the room, or hear his laugh. Your brilliance and heart is irreplaceable, and will be so sorely missed. Love you always, brother! *Turn up the volume a little bit...* https://vimeo.com/9159773
Allo friends! Matteo signing on briefly just to share some things I'm excited about apart from Moni's ridiculously gorgeous Tiny Desk set! Firstly, here's the first teaser of a project that Zach and I have been working on for the past several months with the ever so brilliant Tonko House. It is to be released early this fall on Hulu Japan, and hopefully to the states soon after! Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4W17Nt8vss Secondly, my dear dear friends in Foreign Fields have shared a mini-doc about their album released this past fall. It's beyond beautiful and I feel very lucky to have been apart of bringing the music to life and to share the story of struggles in mental illness, and the hope and love we can offer each other. I found great solace in the music and these friends in times of darkness, and hope you'll watch the video and have a listen to their music! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bZowV9iAZc&feature=youtu.be Love you all, miss you all! -Matteo

Hey peepsies, Matteo here! Just wanted to let y'all know about something I'm very honored to be working on currently. I'm very excited to reveal a knew project in the works with the amazing Tonko House animation studio. It's a 10-episode series directed by the incredible ERICK OH, to be released by Hulu Japan this summer. Zach and I began collaborating with this amazing team almost exactly 4 years ago, and it's been a wild ride since the beginning. Please give the Tonko House page a like/follow and watch this incredibly beautiful project come together, amongst their many other amazing endeavors! Much love :) Cheers, -Matteo
