Matthew-Dear-Bunny“Sounds like a drunk college kid imitating Tom Waits.” That was what my wife heard when she heard Matthew Dear’s voice. And it’s pretty much true, except during the moments where Dear sounds like a drunk college kid imitating Berlin Trilogy-era David Bowie. It’s part of the man’s charm. Dear never intended to become a … More »

Matthew Dear emerges from hiatus with two new songs ahead of new albumMatthew Dear Bunny 1

Experimental electronica aficionado Matthew Dear has announced he is putting out his first studio album since 2012:  Bunny, a Ghostly International production. To accompany the news, he has shared two new original tracks, the aesthetically adverse “Bunny’s Dream” and “Echo.”

The 14-track project, due out October 12 of this year, is to include the previously-released “Modafinil Blues” and collaborative offering with indie alternative duo, Tegan and Sara, “Bad Ones,” foreshadowing the likely complex, highly nuanced nature of the upcoming album.

In a recent release, Dear explains the reasoning behind the album’s en-Dear-ing title choice”

“I’m calling this one Bunny. As always, it’s got a little bit of everything that makes me who I am. Why Bunny? Fundamentally, I love the way the word looks and sounds. I love the way it rolls off the mind and onto the tongue… Bunnies are cute. Bunnies are weird. They’re soft. They’re sexy. They’re lucky. They wildly procreate. They trick hunters, but get tricked by turtles. They lead you down holes…”

The two starkly contrasting tracks serve to represent both the whimsical and gritty sides of Dear’s productions, respectively.

01. Bunny’s Dream
02. Calling
03. Can You Rush Them
04. Echo

Matthew Dear – “Bunny’s Dream” & “Echo”

This post was originally published on this site

Matthew-Dear-BunnyThe veteran Michigan singer and producer Matthew Dear has been making slinky, playful mutations of dance music for many years, but it’s been a while since we last heard from him. Dear’s last album was 2012’s Beams, and since then, he’s kept himself busy with things like DJ gigs and the side project … More »

Listen to two new songs from Matthew Dear’s upcoming album! Come on! All the cool kids are doing it!

Matthew Dear just might be the leader of a cult. Let’s face it. He’s mischievous, mysterious, well-versed, enigmatic, and hey, he just has the voice for it —not to mention the hair! Can you really create such devilish electronica for over 20 years without some shady dealings? I don’t think so.

The newest of Dear’s arcane creations is Bunny, his fifth full-length album and first record under his own name since 2012’s Beams. The record will be out October 12 on Ghostly International, a label at which Dear is a founding artist and consistent resident. Bunny huh?? Perhaps one like this?

If you want to root around the garden for more clues, lucky you! Matthew Dear has released two new singles ahead of the record: “Bunny’s Dream” and “Echo,” which you can stream below. They are — in true Matthew Dear fashion — difficult to define, with a great level of saturation and twisted beats. Some part of me wants to play them backwards and listen for coded messages that tell me to fly to San Francisco or invest in Synthetic Plastics or something…

From Dear:

“I make music for people who like my music” is something I recently tweeted. There is something I’ve come to love about my career. I really can do whatever I want. So long as I feel it’s the best use of time, or yields results that translate into good music later. That’s where you’ll find the music. It’s in my head. It’s on my hard drives. It’s in my car driving the girls to school in the morning.

In other words, if you’re already a follower of Matthew Dear, rejoice! If you’re not…well, you’ll find out about your fate soon enough. Until then, go ahead and pre-order Bunny now.

Matthew Dear, Joe Goddard and Eats Everything link up on ‘Love Games’

Matthew Dear, Joe Goddard and Eats Everything link up on ‘Love Games’Unnamed 3

While it’s easy for artists to collaborate virtually, the latest track from Matthew Dear, Joe Goddard and Eats Everything came to be in a way unique only to them. Dear, best known for his dance and experimental pop music, connected with Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard over some out of the box portraits he had drawn, and the two ended up making “Love Games” together.

Enlisting underground beatmaker Eats Everything to add the final touches, “Love Games” entered the world as an entrancing industrial tech house track ready for the boom of summer. Retro accents abound, we hear analog synth bits merge with heavily-edited vocals and other glitchy accents to make quite the infectious, danceworthy number. Its catchiness was quickly noticed by Catz ‘n’ Dogz, who signed it onto their Pets Recordings imprint.
