For his fourth album, Matthew Dear travels to the BLACK CITY and discovers some mellow blues in "Honey" before the angular funk of "I Can't Feel" creeps up your spine. The smoother, if idiosyncratic, house of "Little People (Black City) helps even out the mood, though, while "Slowdance" brings down the tempo and a sliding sense of romance. The electro comes to life on "You Put A Smell On Me," and "Monkey" captures Dear's 'anything goes' lyrical sensibilities to a tee. The nocturnal throb of "More Surgery" conjures up city lights drifting by during a slow cruise, before "Gem" ends the album on a delicate, sweet note. There's no one quite like Matthew Dear, and I'm glad to see him keep it that way.
