Laughing Boy, the second solo album from Matteah Baim, was recorded in Chicago, where it was produced, arranged, and mixed by Baim with engineer Jamie Carter. The album features performances by Butchy Fuego, Robert A. A. Lowe, Leyna Marika Papach, Rob Doran, Emmett Kelly, Hisham Akira Bharoocha, Birdie Lawson, and Rose Lazar. Expanding on the sounds hinted at with her previous band, Metallic Falcons, and her first solo record, Death of The Sun (DiCristina, 2007), Baim has created her most lush and beautiful recordings yet with Laughing Boy.

Matteah Baim was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1996, at the age of 17, she moved to California to study painting and drawing at the San Francisco Art Institute. After graduating, Baim moved to New York where she met Sierra Casady. In 2005, the duo began to write music together and formed the "soft metal" Metallic Falcons. Voodoo Eros released their first record, Desert Doughnuts, in 2006, recorded in Brooklyn, New Mexico, and Chicago, with performances by Antony, Devendra Banhart, Jana Hunter, and Greg Rogove.

After the Metallic Falcons disbanded, Baim moved to Los Angeles and began writing and recording material (both at her Venice Beach home and at Chicago's CarterCo studio) for Death of the Sun. She spent the next two years touring and writing material for Laughing Boy, working on music for several films, and exhibiting drawings. Baim currently lives and works in New York.
