The hard grafters at Burger Records have dug up another rough diamond here. Mattiel’s sound is a heady brew of influences from the grittier end of American garage rock. The White Stripes, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, it’s all in there across the dozen tracks of Mattiel's eponymous LP. ‘Whites of Their Eyes’ will probably end up soundtracking a scene in the next Tarantino film.
Staff note from Clinton:
The distorted, compressed vocals do my head in.

8/10 Janus Herad Customer review, 17th June 2018
I love this new artist. She has a shockingly strong and up front vocal style, none of that breathy stuff. Turns out she's writing all these lyrics and her bandmates are writing the music. The most amazing thing about this first album is its variety. There are songs that charge out and attack and songs that hang back, almost sadly. There is nostalgia and anger and humor. All in all, I can't think of any other artist I've heard in the last 6 months that is more interesting. And I guess Jack White thinks so too because she just fronted for him across the States.
