Matthew Dear Ep 1 & 2
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Spectral Sound
You can't help but think you're listening to some strange history on these two bits of vinyl. Ann Arbor boy Dear neatly disabuses techno of its orthodoxy, either by sucking it into the void ? la Coil on "Laguna Madre," snapping it like a sugar pea on "Reae," stuffing it into a cave on "Lakonic," or simply muffling the whole whiny mess under his shoe on "Pinch & Pillage." Ten tracks for the whispered end of history.
