Martin Eden "Worker"
Matthew Cooper of Eluvium is reintroducing himself to the world as Martin Eden on his latest release with Lefse, a 7" arriving as part of the label's ongoing series. Cooper has described this new project as music "which may appeal to fans of early Aphex Twin stuff, or turn of the century electronic music." The track, "Worker," is a minimal, ambient song characterized by its layers of swelling synths, obscure vocal samples, emotive guitar strums, and a steady drum pattern. It all opens with just the synths, as the rest of the elements are slowly but surely introduced to the soundscape, eventually leaving you right back where you started, with just the synths.
