I know I’ve not been on here for a few weeks. Work/trips away and various other stuff combining to keep me tired, but I’ve still been listening to loads of music, and I’m sure I’m preaching to the converted when I say how brilliant Matthew Dear’s new one, Beams, is. If it’d fallen in my month it’d have been my album. I’ve always loved his stuff, electronically of course (Audion especially) but his first album blew me away and Black City was a much darker, bleaker prospect.
Beams seems to never sound like anything else. At turns funky, stripped back, uplifting, miserable. I love it. He’s a ridiculously talented man.
Here’s Headcage, from it. Enjoy.
