The RPM Album (2009)

Album recorded for the 2009 RPM Challenge. All music written and recorded by Wyld Pytch. We wanted to add more pieces to it, and the mix is a little bass-heavy, but we did what we could with the time constraints. We may continue to advance these songs beyond their current state.

Disaster Officials (2010)

Collaboration between Matt and Andy (of Wyld Pytch) and Pat Stura (of himself). Pat sings, so this album is much different than last year's. Matt sings a little this time, too

I Am The Center Of The Universe (2015)

Written, performed and recorded by Matt Barr, drummer for Chicago rock band KEMMAN

The Citizen (2016) & That Which Exists (2013) (2016)

2016 - The Citizen. All songs written by Matt Barr except "Wyld Pytch 2016" by Andy Preston and Matt Barr. All instruments perfomed by Matt Barr except the left bass guitar part of "Wyld Pytch 2016" performed by Andy Preston. 2013 - That Which Exists. All songs written and performed by Matt Barr. Originally under the name Pant Claps.

Not Enough Hot To Go Around (2017)

2017 RPM album in which Matt plays with synths and drum machines.
