Enjoying This New Matthew Dear Tune

I’ve always had a soft spot for the work of Matthew Dear, but we haven’t really heard much from him since 2012, so with a new album on the horizon, I figure we should give it some attention. It’s a common electronic sound, with understated pulses subsiding so that vocals can ride over the groundwork. Oh, and speaking of the vocals, this track features Tegan and Sara throwing down some lines, which should draw some raves (myself included). All those voices combine in the end, as a dancer beat comes in to bring about a spirited exuberance. His music is always thoughtful and simultaneously playful, and I can always back that. Bunny comes out on October 12th via Ghostly.

Wednesday night is full of good solid shows, but one of our highlights for the week is Producer/DJ Matthew Dear.  He’s blowing into town in support of his popular new record, Beams; he’s sure to provide you with your midweek energy!  But, if that wasn’t enough, he’s bringing Outputmessage along with him, but you need to definitely get there at doors because one of Austin’s most exciting acts, Orthy will be opening the night up just before the group heads out on a nice East Coast tour.  Those of you with the dance/electronic leaning, this is the place you’ll want to be.

Oh, and hang around inside afterwards to check out Dignan Porch.

New Music From Matthew Dear

Over the last few years, I’ve grown to be a moderate fan of Matthew Dear and the beats he creates as a DJ/Producer/musician.  The music I’m hearing from his new album Black City (out August 17th) may turn me into an even bigger fan.  Below you’ll find why I’m hot on this guy’s trail with new song “Soil to Seed” off the upcoming record.  You can also pick up another track on his website called “I can’t Feel” for the price of an email address.
