MATTHEW DEAR - www.matthewdear.com/
Depending on whom you ask, Matthew Dear is a DJ, a dance-music producer, an experimental pop artist, a bandleader. He co-founded both Ghostly International and its dancefloor offshoot, Spectral Sound. He's had remixes commissioned by The XX, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Spoon, Hot Chip, The Postal Service, and Chemical Brothers; he's made mixes for the Fabric mix series and Get Physicals Body Language. He maintains four aliases (Audion, False, Jabberjaw, and Matthew Dear), each with its own style and distinct visual identity. He straddles multiple musical worlds and belongs to none and he's just hitting his stride.
Matthew Dear's 2003 full-length Ghostly debut, Leave Luck to Heaven, is a suite of sparse, wickedly funky house laced with Dears deep, distinctive vocals, and includes the much-loved single Dog Days (voted one of Pitchfork's Top 100 Songs of the Decade). The record was met with rapturous acclaim from both the dance-music establishment and the critical press, including a four-star review in Rolling Stone. Dear's 2007 follow-up,
Asa Breed, is a considerable departure from Heavens dancefloor excursions, incorporating the polyrhythms of Afrobeat, the irreverent pop sensibilities of Brian Eno, and the austere beauty of Krautrock. More four-stars reviews followed (Q and Mojo magazines), and Dear subsequently began touring with a live three-piece band, Matthew Dear's Big Hands, in which he acted as frontman, commanding the stage with a Bryan Ferry-like swagger and a gentleman's grace.
After 2010's critically acclaimed 'Black City' record was taken around the world, Matthew retreated to Sullivan County to write and record is 5th record 'Beams'....Now Matthew returns to Europe and to Birmingham to bring 'Beams' to the Hare and Hounds.
Those of you caught Matthew Dear last time he played, will no doubt be aware that it was one of the best shows of the year, so expect nothing short of breathtaking on this tour.
As demand for this show is very high, we strongly suggest picking up advance tickets to ensure entry.
