Self

Self is largely the project of Matt Mahaffey, a Murfreesboro, TN-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist who began writing songs at age four and was a professional drummer at 12. During high school and college he became proficient at home recording, setting up a studio in his basement and recording demos, some of which eventually became part of his debut album, 1995's Subliminal Plastic Motives. The album, an eclectic blend of power pop, hip-hop, and samples, earned Self a devoted following and tour dates with big alternative acts like Garbage, 311, and Cracker. After being on the road with touring bandmates guitarist/vocalist Mike Mahaffey, keyboardist/vocalist Chris James, drummer Jason Rawlings, and bassist/vocalist Mac Burrus, Matt Mahaffey celebrated his return to the studio by releasing a small-run album, Half-Baked Serenade, on the local Spongebath label. 1999 saw Self return to the limelight with Breakfast With Girls, which was co-released by Spongebath and Dreamworks. 2000's Gizmodgery was performed exclusively on toy instrumentation. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi

Subliminal Plastic Motives really needs to be on here.

Good stuff!
takingdagger s
hell of lot more going on with Self than "power pop, hip hop and samples"
No Subliminal Plastic Motives? That's a modern classic!! Epic fail, Pandora. Also, get Porno, Mint & Grime. I think I have everything Matt has ever recorded, except for a few soundtrack and sampler tracks.
Highly underrated to say the least. Most inovative band that we will see in our life time.
More, please.
Great Band, weak selection.
Gizmodgery! is nugget. RIP mike m.
Self is a cross between Prince and Beck. This band deserves more attention. And more of their albums should be on Pandora, such as Porno, Mint, and Grime.
where's subliminal plastic motives? selfafornia? ::|
WoW! slick.
