Little introduction is needed for Matthew Cooper, the mastermind behind Eluvium. For 10 years he has produced music that consistently impresses fans and critics worldwide.
His last full length LP (not including his mini album Static Nocturne) was Similes (2010), which for the first time featured Matthew’s vocals. I personally love this album and rate it as highly as his other more notable releases such as, Copia (2007) and Talk Amongst the Trees (2005).
After three years, Matthew has announced that he’ll be releasing a new full length album on May 14th called Nightmare Ending which he describes as a “fully instrumental affair“. So far he has released two tracks from the new album, Don’t Get Any Closer and Envenom Mettle. Continue reading →
Radiohead super producer Nigel Godrich has started a new music project and it’s awesome. His new musical venture is called Ultraista and it consists of himself, Mauro Refosco (Smashing Pumpkins/Beck/Atoms For Peace) and Laura Bettinson (formerly of Dimbleby and Capper, she now records as Femme). Not much else is known about the band, as information on the group’s website is scarce, however they appear to take their name from early-20th century Spanish literary movement ultraísmo. They do have Soundcloud, Twitter and Facebook accounts. Their debut album will be released on 2nd October via Temporary Residence, and you can hear two of the tracks from the album below.
