After playing several shows in Lebanon last month, Emperor X said, “Beirut, that was BANANAS.” #emperorx #chadmatheny #westernteleport #beirut #lebanon #indiemusic

Chad Matheny é @emperorx
Conta com 6 álbuns, sete EP's, muitas tournées pela Europa e Américas e o hábito de disponibilizar os seus trabalhos - gravados em cassete - em diversos pontos de Geocaching. Animal de palco, recorre a uma guitarra e por vezes, a uma caixa de ritmos que utiliza aplicada ao ombro. A música de Emperor X é lo-fi e vem carregada por uma obsessão temática por literatura modernista e as infraestruturas de transportes. Matheny vive actualmente em Berlim, onde gere um espaço experimental, e faz voluntariado como instrutor de música e tecnologia, num programa de apoio a jovens refugiados.
Festival A Porta, Um Festival para Todos! 16-24 Junho, Leiria.

Look out, Emperor X! That tape gun is loaded. This picture was taken 2 years ago when Chad Matheny aka Emperor X was in the office picking up copies of his 2011 masterpiece, Western Teleport. It’s a fantastic album, go and stream it today. #emperorx #chadmatheny #westernteleport #sigalert #tapegun

Chad Matheny aka Emperor X is a former high school science teacher. In 2004, he abandoned his pursuit of a masters degree in physics in order to dedicate his life to indie rock.

Chad Matheny aka Emperor X stopped by our office to show us a copy of his 8th full length release, Oversleepers International. We thought it was super cool and Stereogum said "there's more than jittery and passionate songwriting on this album." #emperorx #chadmatheny #stereogum #indierock #madscientist

For close to 15 years Emperor X has been touring the world playing art galleries, bars, libraries, national forests, garbage strewn pedestrian tunnels, etc. He has shared the stage with The Hold Steady, Sebadoh, The Hotelier and The Front Bottoms. John Vanderslice even called him "a serious genius" and some people even added "a really nice guy." #emperorx #chadmatheny #sigalert #westernteleport #schoenhutpiano #toypiano #schoenhut #indiemusic #fingerprints

Chad Matheny aka Emperor X has been referred to as the Mad Scientist of Indie Rock.

Chad Matheny (Emperor X), photographed last year in Connecticut while on a weekend tour with Animal Flag. Catch them touring together in a few weeks.

A journalist once asked Chad Matheny aka Emperor X how he would describe his music to an "uninitiated listener" and he tried to paraphrase Mark Robinson from Unrest, "...depending on who was asking; for his grandparents or people who seemed like they casually liked music, he'd say 'We sound like R.E.M.' For punk kids, he'd say 'like Mission of Burma but more calm.'" #emperorx #unrest #chadmatheny #rem #missionofburma #westernteleport #sigalert #madscientist of #indierock

When Chad Matheny aka Emperor X made the album Western Teleport he was living in Los Angeles. During a phone call with the Huffington Post, he discussed navigating that city as a pedestrian and using public transportation, "That place is crazy if you walk. It's very pleasant and button down and clean if you're a car operator, but if you don't have a car to mediate your interaction with the world, it's insanely filthy. It's very unhealthy and it's like a war walking around... But my work is more interesting when my life is more interesting. Western Teleport is kind of a dark record...it's coming out of a pretty dark, exploratory, sweaty, breathless place in my life" #emperorx #chadmatheny #huffingtonpost #westernteleport #sigalert #telephone #indiemusic

#tbt it was this week in 2011 that we released the fantastic Western Teleport album by Emperor X. Tiny Mix Tapes called it "an absolute victory lap" and the Chicago Reader said it was "a stunning collection that's easy to, um, dig." Chad Matheny aka Emperor X is pictured here with Adam Lasus who mixed several songs on the record #emperorx #adamlasus #chadmatheny #westernteleport #sigalert #madscientists #indierock #tinymixtapes #chicagoreader

Things can get sticky when Emperor X stops by our office for a visit. Back in 2011 when Western Teleport came out PopMatters called it a "masterpiece" and Stephen Deusner told Salon Magazine, "It's a wonderfully bizarre idea of what rock music can be." #emperorx #chadmatheny #westernteleport #popmatters #salonmagazine #sigalert #tapegun #wonderfullybizarre #stephendeusner #madscientist #indierock
