Cut by Rashad Becker at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin, January 2011.
Matthew Mullane is a Chicago multi-instrumentalist performing under the guise of Fabric.
Here we have a fine suite of compositions which embark on a voyage through darkness of night and the brightness of day. Washed out dark colors and static pulses sweep across your stereo painting a portrait of intense yearning and determination. Recorded over the course of a year, Matthew has constructed a multi dimensional organism of sound that has perplexing depth and astounding detail.
The album reveals new shapes and sizes with repeat listens and is truly a work which you can submerge yourself in to get lost. "Leaving the House" is an energetic workout with it's dense, ultraviolet fog and stream-like melodies.
Then there's the vignettes such as "Orange and Red" or "Containers", that branch out into unfamiliar territory in their own special ways synthesizing a journey far from home.
So far, Fabric releases have appeared in very small editions including a split with Sparkling Wide Pressure and a practically non-existent cassette on Fairchild Tapes. Spectrum Spools is proud to kick off the label by presenting the debut Fabric album.
