Jem Recordings signs The Legal Matters!

Album coming soon!

 

The Legal Matters isn't just a band, it's a meeting of the minds of three notable figures on the Midwest power pop scene: Keith Klingensmith was a member of Hippodrome and the Phenomenal Cats and runs the indie pop label Futureman Records, Andy Reed was the leader of the group An American Underdog, and Chris Richards was Klingensmith's bandmate in Hippodrome and the Phenomenal Cats as well as leading Chris Richards & the Subtractions. 

Press Quotes

"Filled with great melodic hooks, glorious harmonies and spine-tingling chord changes."(Discussions Magazine) The album's charm lies in its lack of pretentiousness and love of creating pure pop music for the now generation. They emulate the feel and emotion of those artists, songs, and albums that have truly made a difference in Pop Music over the last 50 years."

"There are plenty of tunes here that could be hit singles, especially the opening track 'Rite of Spring' and the mildly cockly 'Before We Get it Right' " - All Music Guide

"The Legal Matters have made an album that easily makes my Top Ten year end list" - Power Popaholic

"The Legal Matters is the best long-player I have heard this year. It is hard to imagine anything coming out the second half of the year to eclipse it" - Pop That Goes Crunch
