Matthew Dear will be playing at one of the best (also most expensive) music and all-things-digital festivals next March: SXSW, the date has to be confirmed… but he’ll be “competing” with many other big names such as┬áZola Jesus, Oneohtrix Point Never or Youth Lagoon who are also presenting recently-released material.

We still have to wait for his upcoming album “Beams”, in the meanwhile and to spice up the festival his EP “Headcage” was released today under his beloved label Ghostly Int.

Last month London-based director Morgan Beringer started to tease us with a flashy video for Headcage first track of the EP… (and freely released on Soundcloud)…

Matthew Dear – Headcage by ghostly

Last week a 2nd teaser was uploaded to vimeo for the second track: “In The Middle (I Met You There)” which features The Drums’ Johnny Pierce in an unusual collaboration for the New Yorker… Ghostly say it’s his first duet in Dear’s decade-long career… and hopefully not his last. Teasers for “Street Song” & “Around a fountain” can be heard on the EP’s Discogs profile.
