[NEW MUSIC]: MATTHEW DEAR'S 'BLACK CITY' (ALBUM + TOTEM)

August 3, 2010

[NEW MUSIC]: MATTHEW DEAR

Matthew Dear’s third album Black City is the culmination of years of hard work and experimentation, a darkly playful sound-world that envelops the listener like the arms of a malevolent lover. After over a decade of exploring pop’s outer limits, Matthew Dear now inhabits a rarefied corner of the musical universe: no longer tethered to any one genre, respected by his peers, and blessed with a bottomless well of creative energy. Now is Matthew Dear’s moment, and it sounds like nothing else.

Black City is now available everywhere digitally, and will be available in physical formats (CD / LP / Totem) exclusively at The Ghostly Store through August 17th. Buy Matthew Dear’s Black City now.

The MDBC Totem is an exploration into the physicality of music in the digital era, conceived by Will Calcutt and designed by the award-winning Boym Partners. It’s also a damn fine piece of sculpture: hand-cast in aluminum, finished in gun-metal patina, and individually inscribed with a unique code to both stream and download Black City.
