Matthew Dear’s third full-length album, the magnificent, malevolent Black City, is now available worldwide in pretty much every physical and digital music retailer you can imagine. Get Black City in all formats (including the spellbinding Totem) at The Ghostly Store.

In its few short days in existence, Black City has been winning over critics left and right, grabbing Pitchfork’s coveted Best New Music nod as well as a Best New Track honor for “Little People (Black City)”. Uncut, Mojo, and Q magazines all gave the record 4 out of 5 stars, and The Wire said Black City is Dear’s “most fully realized and triumphantly elaborate album to date.”

We couldn’t be prouder of our boy. Now, listen to Black City yourself and hear what all the fuss is about.
