Skeletons, initially the work of Matt Mehlan -- a rather idiosyncratic pop songwriter who uses loads of electronics -- had a very low-key beginning in Oberlin, OH, with a pair of albums (I'm at the Top of the World and Life and the After Birth) released on the Shinkoyo label, which Mehlan co-founded. At some point, Mehlan was joined by Carson Garhart, Severiano Martinez, Jason McMahon, and Johnny Misheff. Git, credited to Skeletons & the Girl-Faced Boys, was released in June 2005 via an alliance between Shinkoyo and Ghostly International. Lucas, which was inspired by the Garden of Eden and the rural Midwest, arrived in spring 2007. Fall 2008's free jazz-influenced Money was released by Tomlab. ~ Andy Kellman
