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.
