Same. Most of my friends will only listen to one or two genres but I'll listen to anything if it sounds good.

Forgot to post this one Very Happy



Some reviews of his album.......

Menton J. Matthews distills the emotional weight of loss and heartbreak down to the tremor of a violin's string and the vibration of a cello's wooden frame. Stepping out from Sunday Munch to record Ganglion as Saltillo, Matthews offers twelve tracks that merge chamber orchestra intimacy with the caliginous seduction of trip-hop.

Matthews has scored a few soundtracks in his time and that mindset thrives throughout the mostly instrumental tracks of Ganglion. Violins and cello warble against a backdrop of sly beats in "A Necessary End" (while Matthews' wife Sarah provides wordless exultations during the bridge); a echo-drenched banjo, a sepia-tinged guitar and a crisp beat make "Remember Me?" seem like the incidental music for a showdown at the OK Corral as if The RZA was scoring Westerns. The Shakespearean-laden "A Hair on the Head of John the Baptist" and "Blood and Milk" play out like DJ Shadow doing soundtrack work on Elizabethan dramas.

"The Opening" is orchestral breakbeat, strings undulating in tempestuous space while wrestling with noisy drum programming; "Backyard Pond" glitches and hiccups with microtonal melodies while vinyl scratching bubbles around a warm synthesizer melody. In "Grafting," Matthews' string work evokes melancholic pastorals while Bristol-style trip-hop throw a 20th century haze over the idyllic landscape. Sarah's voice is lost in glossalia, ephemeral world-beat vocalizing that is so diaphanous that it never touches the ground.

For once, the press sheet hype ("quite possibly the finest release we've ever heard") doesn't seem like hyperbole. Ganglion is sumptuous listening -- rife with heartache and release, longing and liberation. Like Portishead or Massive Attack, Satillio brings trip-hop to the heartland and gives it a new home. Highly recommended.

also his 2nd album is coming out next month if anyone wants to check it out ill probably post my thoughts here at the time Very Happy

Yh Trip Hop.......

Funny you say Sunday Munich, because he is a member of Sunday Munich......

I have a plan to go through his last fm page and look for artists that are similar.

See if i can uncover any other unrecognized artists, its saddening to me that these people dont get the recognition they deserve and some kids slap on some autotune and make millions.



They was'nt kidding about that Matthews delves deep into the disused corridors of our hidden hiding places, distilling the painfully honest solitude, longings, disappointments and aching needs at the heart of our secret selves into the pure sound of emotional honesty was they?

deep deep song.

Try Cinephile and Atonalis and Emancipator...those are 3 of my favourites...

Emancipator is probably the most similar to Satillo other than Sunday Munich....
