Can’t believe I’ve been sleeping on DC native Matt Hemerlein for so long. The dude has been taking the city by storm with his violin, bridging classical and contemporary sounds. Along with guitarist Tosin Abasi (a part of his “Family Players”) they craft a rather amazing cover of Radiohead’s Paranoid Android. Check it.
Matt will be playing this Friday at Sova on H Street in DC and select dates at SXSW.

Also, as a refresher, he did the strings on Nacey’s excellent remix of La Roux’s “Bulletproof.”
