Boomkat Product Review:
San Francisco's Matthew Larkin Cassell presents his '...Complete Works' for Stones Throw. As the story goes... Larkin happened to notice a sample of his music in the Madvillainy Remixes set and promptly contacted the label. The outcome of that exchange is this LP, compiling each of his three DIY-produced and self-released records. He name checks the Sons of Champlin, Tower of Power, Paul Simon, Steely Dan, and Laura Nyro as his influences and that's clearly evident in his soulful mixture of rock, jazz and pop. Original copies of those fateful records now sell for stupid money and Cassell is now producing new material. LP is housed in full colour gatefold sleeve with original artwork by the artist.
