Electric Needle Room are an indie pop band currently based in Kansas City but formed in Lawrence, Kansas in 2004. It is mostly a solo project for Matt Beat, but his brother, Steven Beat, also helps with percussion. Emcee DL and Bryan Poole helped the band with live performances in Omaha, Nebraska, from 2007 to 2009. The band has released five full-length albums and two EPs since its inception. Between 2009 and 2013, Matt completed a collection of songs that commemorated the 43 Presidents of the United States of America. He released the first volume on Presidents Day 2011, the second volume on Presidents Day 2012, and the third volume on Presidents Day 2013. That same year, Chris Huggard and Elijah Ringler joined the band for live performances.

Their seventh full-length album, “It’s Getting Personal,” was released in January 2014. Their first split EP with The Worsh Ahts, entitled “Uplifting Songs for the Downtrodden Heart,” was release in August that same year.
