matthewdavid - Outmind
*Leaving Records boss Matthewdavid drops his debut album proper on Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label**. California's louche, post-modern psych-hop scene is in overdrive right now, and this collection of sun-stroked, lopsided beats from respected freak Matthewdavid is one of its most convincing offerings to date. Matthewdavid collaborated with Sun Araw on the breathtraking Livephreaxxx!!!!! cassette, and he certainly operates in a similarly dubbed-out and hazy field to Cameron Stallones; however, as befits his new home on Brainfeeder, our man is a little more inclined to the dancefloor. It means that Outmind is, at its best, a truly beguiling blend of post-dubstep and heady hypnagogia. FlyLo himself contributes to the marimba'd astral jazz interlude 'Group Tea', which comes over like Alice Coltrane, Roland Young and Dylan Ettinger sharing a brew, while 'Today, The Same Way' sounds like Dam-Funk's good-times boogie fed through a cement mixer. As the album progresses, MD's default setting of hyper-edited, glitchy trip-hop can tire a little, and for us some of the most memorable cuts are the most ambient and abstract - pay special attention to the gaseous, haunting 'Floor Music’ and the prismatic, chiming closer 'No Need To Worry / Mean Too Much'. Fans of heat-spoiled head music -from James Ferraro and Sun Araw to Gonjasufi and Mount Kimbie - get involved.
