Yes and yes? Splendid. You will love this new LP from Mattiel - her second, in fact - as it's exactly what you'd expect if you've heard albums by those folks, or you've heard her first LP. Over the course of that album, and now this one, you hear a variety of absolutely lovely types of rock 'n' roll music. Mattiel deals in rock, garage rock, indie rock, R&B, blues rock, country rock and rock rock.
The second album by Atlanta-based retro-contemporary singer Mattiel (Mattiel Brown), Satis Factory returns collaborators Randy Michael and Jonah Swilley from her 2017 self-titled debut. The pair are not trivial contributors to her work to this point; while Mattiel writes the lyrics and melodies for her songs, between them, Michael and Swilley have written, recorded, produced, mixed, and played multiple instruments for her releases. It's a symbiotic arrangement that began when they met in 2014 and bonded over similar tastes in music.
