Herbert "Smart" - Boiler Room Debuts

→ FOR AUDIO: → SUBSCRIBE TO BOILER ROOM: Matthew Herbert is one of the most skilled purveyors of the weird and wonderful. This is the man that recruited master chef Heston Blumenthal as a collaborator and turned the life cycle of a farmed pig into a peculiar, yet sophisticated bout of electronica back in 2011. He's been a busy man since. In 2012, he was appointed as the creative director of the revamped BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Then came his debut opera at the Royal Opera House, a score for the BFI and an album in a week live on stage and with an audience at the Deutsche Oper Berlin. The Shakes is Herbert's first outing under the name Herbert since 2006's grand Scale on K7!. As a project, it's anchored by intensely personal issues such as raising young children against a backdrop of an increasingly unstable world. "Smart" utilises quirks from a Wormwood Scrubs piano as its spine, while Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne - who has also worked with the likes of Hejira and Nitin Sawhney - provides the playful vocal flourishes on top. It arrives on June 1st via Caroline International on CD and vinyl. → FOLLOW US HERE FOR MORE FUN: Facebook: Twitter: Soundcloud:
