Artist: HOPKINS, MATTHEW PHILIP
Title: Vent
Format: LP
Label: Penultimate Press
Country: UK
Price: $26.00
"Matthew P Hopkins has established himself as a formidable presence in the experimental circuit courtesy of a diverse range of projects including Naked on the Vagues debased rock, Half Highs blurred dreams and Four Doors take on techno. Penultimate Press is proud to reissue Hopkins second solo effort originally issued as a micro edition self released cdr. Vent proposes a Frankenstein assemblage of the awry ambience heard on the recently acclaimed Nocturnes lp merged with a more extreme take on the ketamine indie crossover of his earlier outfit, Vincent Over the Sink. Side A features four transcendental propositions bathing in perverse transitions, inhuman vocals and a singular audio perspective where spacious room recordings weave amongst crude studies in direct input. Side B extends the dichotomy of grit and beauty into more spacious planes as the hovering grace of the side long Wobbly Study is interrupted by melodies at the point where melody is visited by sound. Vent is a unique exhumation of sonics and song, the ambient and the uncanny. One which raises an eyebrow to the sky from the scratchy floorboards below." - Penultimate Press.

Title: Nocturnes
Format: LP
Label: Vittelli
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Vittelli continues to set out its stall with this brilliant LP by Australian sound maker Matthew Philip Hopkins (Vincent Over the Sink / The Bowles / NOTV / Half High). This is Hopkins first solo vinyl outing after a decade of micro-edition cassettes and CDRs. Nocturnes was assembled during late night headphone sessions at Hopkins Sydney home in late 2013. He employs synth, cassettes, fx pedals, contact mic and random objects to create a hypnotic suite of dramatic and highly evocative works that will appeal to listeners of Nate Young, William Basinski, Rushford & Talia, Andrew Chalk, Giancarlo Toniutti, Ralf Wehowsky et al. Nocturnes was mastered by Graham Lambkin (Kye / Shadow Ring) and comes in an edition of 300 on grey vinyl with colour sleeve and printed insert featuring texts of listening events written and assembled by the artist." - Vittelli.
