Ever been perplexed on what to say at the perfect moment. Some little gem that will gain you the respect of your peers and demonstrate your cultural prowess.

Matthew Dear Lunchbox

So we have had lots of meetings, presentations, reviews, you name it. And we have no reports for any of them. One thing we do have, other than the rain, is our beloved lunchbox series. Matthew Dear was on the road from SF and decided to come on in and show us what they got. A lovely combination of digital samples and beats to go with the bass, drums and vocals.




The bread on my sandwich might have been stale, but not the sounds from Matthew Dear. Check them out tonight at Holocene.
