French artisan record label and mastering studio, Valeur d’usage have released the great ‘Go Away’ album by MXLX (if you’ve not heard it yet I seriously recommend you check out) on limited edition, 12″ transparent vinyl.
Go Away sees MXLX (otherwise known as Matt Loveridge) go down a more acoustic route but without losing any of the extreme rawness of his other releases.
Full press release is as follows:
“Matt Loveridge creates and delivers music with a strong sense of freedom that goes far beyond the current notions and boundaries of musical genres. Hence the radical use of sounds typically related to noise, kraut, fuzz saz & metal in his varied past releases and under his many names: MXLX, Gnar Hest, Fairhorns … he’s also known as the « goth » of the trio Beak> (to name few).
“This experimental path has led to « Go Away », described by MXLX himself as a « hollering wreck » of « autistic blues », in fact 9 desperately beautiful acoustic songs, quietly shouted at your face.”
To pick up a copy (and I’d be quick about it as there are only 200 available) visit Valeur d’usage’s website.
