Matthew Herbert Herbert100 lbs
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: !K7
Matthew Herbert can get away with producing silk-pajama'd house for any Macy's dressing room and critiquing capitalism by crushing Coke cans and Big Mac wrappers. A decade ago, he began shaving away the fat from house while keeping its groove essentials intact-making music that lazy critics like me call "microhouse." 100 lbs collects his three EPs of such sounds. "I'll Do It" drops vocal fragments like specks of rain hitting a windshield, and "Pen" brilliantly struts to a bulbous cadence. This album is more pleasurable than hearing Herbert drive a tank over a dinner plate to protest Bush and Blair.
