[we sell boxes] Four tracks of lovely analogue warmth, though final track "Goodbye Mr Lahey" is probably the most immediate with its constant rising tone and clever percussive tonal play. Favorite track: Goodbye Mr. Lahey (digital only).

about

Opening the record we have "If we're all in the back who's driving?". Driven by a broken beat, an undulating pad and a sprinkling of acid fairy dust the track requires no more to feel complete. Intentionally sparse but with the ability to fill your perception. A minimalistic attribute thats wholly down to the refinement of the production.

"This is not a drill" breaks us out of the trance like state of the opener and plunges us straight into his more off kilter sound. Groove, groove and more groove all wrapped up in weird goodness that is unafraid to show a un-pretentious but deadly side to the EP.

With "A particular kind of peculiar" Matt showcases another facet of his production palette. Moving back towards the rich textures he evokes with his use of emotive pads this time layered up with a driving 4/4 beat.

Rounding up the EP we have "Goodbye Mr. Lahey", a track for the late night heads which ebbs and flows with latent acidic intent. Piercing acid licks coupled with the dizzying bass line add to the danceable confusion O'Brien lays down in this head spin of a track.

As with all his work, this is still a raw cut of no-nonsense music, but one that has a lot of depth to it when you take a closer look. A record that takes inspiration from various scenes to generate his own unique and nuanced sound aimed squarely at the dance floor. Offering plenty of variety and stylistic choices, that are all tied together by a playful and alternative feel.
