Michigan electro-adventurer Matthew Dear released his latest EP, Headcage, earlier today. We’ve already heard the title track, and now the entire four-track EP is streaming online. A free download is also available of Headcage‘s catchiest track, ‘In the Middle (I Met You There)’. If you haven’t heard Dear’s acclaimed 2010 album Black City, do yourself a favour and do so now – it’s a masterclass in tense, ghostly avant-pop and minimal electronica with echoes of such pioneers as David Bowie and Trent Reznor. Dear is currently touring Australia, and will be performing a DJ set in Wellington, New Zealand next week (22nd) at Sandwiches.
