I strongly suggest to check his blog out, as it’s a goldmine of deep, authentic and interesting reflections. Matthew is yet another person that I’ve found through the decentralised web — which is how the internet was originally built.
When the algorithm is off, the lights come in.
The first track in particular reminds me of Pink Floyd’s The Wall, though in this album we are not asked to empathize with a self-isolating rock musician who uses drugs to cope with unresolved childhood trauma. Simone Silvestroni plays a mean bass, and unlike many albums his bass and piano don’t get buried in the mix.
Even if this wasn’t excellent music, I would still recommend it. As the horrors of the Second World War, the Holocaust, and the all-pervading existential terror of the Cold War fade from living memory, it falls to artists to keep that history alive for future generations lest it be repeated.
