Matthew Dear revives his False moniker for a second album, '2007'. "I didn't want the title to distract from the music," says Dear.
Dear has been a busy beaver so far this year. In addition to releasing 'Asa Breed' under his own name and the aptly titled 'Noiser/Fred's Bells' single as Audion, Dear has just put together a new long-player of False material, his alias for more experimental techno. Why call it just 2007? "The music, I think, is very relevant to the time and technology, so I wanted to call it something simple, something basic," Dear told RA. "I didn't want the title to distract from the music."
The album's fourteen tracks are stitched together as a live mix. "It plays like a DJ mix, almost," says Dear, "I think it's a good ride." Drawing together swampy atmospherics and dribbling beat clusters, '2007' promises to be a haunting addition to the Minus catalog.
