recorded and mixed by: Matt LeMay and Nick Sylvester

Unkind/Unusual by Matty Fasano
-sang with "Mr. Dream and the State Street Singers", aka the Men's Chorus for the final LCD Soundsystem shows
-plays bass in ARMS, who have an awesome new album coming out this fall
-has a truly special voice, capable of both Antony-like theatricality and the breathy intimacy type moves of your Nick Drakes and Elliot Smiths
-infamously kicked out Mr. Dream's Matt Morello from a short-lived band called Shout To Talk
-has a solo show August 1 at Pianos, featuring (ha ha ha) Matt Morello on drums
-two sparse piano/voice meditations that slayed me and matt lemay in demo form. if i'm being honest this is what i had hoped the james blake album would sound like: a little more weathered, creepier, wearier. more like a minimalist tim buckley maybe? i don't know. matt and i were honored to record and mix matty's debut. this is really special stuff.
-piano recorded with two nice ribbons in Boerum Hill courtesy Matt Morello and Konrad Kaczmarek, another LCD Chorus alum. many thanks to Konrad for letting us get in there
-voice and aux percussion recorded in Williamsburg at A Question of Frequency
-take a look at those beautiful wavey waveforms and get yourself to Joe Lambert for all your mastering needs
