Matthew Dear Returns

Ghostly International co-founder Matthew Dear is back with album #3 'Black City' being released this week August the 17th. It's his first new album since 2007's critically acclaimed 'Asa Breed'. I haven't heard the whole thing yet, but Pitchfork gave it a best music rating of 8.4 that you can read here. All the press/reviews I've read so far say it's his darkest most focused work to date, which considering the album title makes perfect sense and gets my interests going.

Ghostly sent over the first single from the album "Little People (Black City)" for us to post. With a dark pulsating disco beat and coming in at 9+ minutes it's pretty epic! Absolutely loving it!

Check it out and see what you guys think. Below is also a teaser video featuring some tracks from the album. You can pick this baby up starting tomorrow at online retailers like iTunes, Amazon or the Ghostly site itself.

P.S. You can also snag "Soil to Seed", track #5 from the album for free on his site here. Short track, but very nice also!
