This Gulls Review Hour guest features Mr. Emlyn Johnson (of Womlyn’s Weekly fame). Together the three serenade and meander through various topics (scandanavia, hatchbacks, Cam Avery’s jacket and maroon jeans, gazebos etc.)
Matt has a new solo release out now on Friends In The World. Tangkuban Perahu is Matt’s 4th release, following his split 7” with Rabbit Island on Badminton Bandit (2011).
This new cdr sees Matt head down a grittier path. Recorded over a 3 month period in late 2010, Tangkuban Perahu takes it’s title from a large sulphur crater in East Java, Indonesia. This magnificent ancient volcano became a frequent source of inspiration and reference point throughout this period, amongst fatigue/loneliness/heart-break.
