Pick of the Day – August 15th: Matthew Dear – Black City

Matthew Dear – Black City

This is weird music – I’m just putting it out up front.  Even more so than his last record under this name, Asa Breed.  I suppose in weirdness I’d put it near The Knife…and even that’s lazy, because there really isn’t a place for it.  It’s kind of a electronic/funk/Bowie/retarded Talking Heads thing going on, that’s either hit or miss with a lot of people, but I enjoy it…it works for me.  Sounds like a soundtrack to some oddball movie, some pretentious amateur director made as his purposefully misunderstood opus.
