Oxx fans will thrill at what’s coming in 2016 year from the prolific Lewes-based artist Matthew The Oxx, a.k.a. Matt Oldfield — a series of complete albums from his past stored up on hard drives all over his house aching to be set free, of which this one is the first.
“Wonderful… an invitation to take action” writes FATEA.
Part of a series entitled ‘Past Lives’, Oxx will digitally liberate albums-worth of material over a matter of months, culminating in his next studio album which will be released over the summer.
This extraordinary album “Haul It Up” is reminiscent of Beck at his finest ‘Sea Change’ days, with more driving rock feel than the smoky Americana flavours of his incredible 2015 release ‘First Aid For The Drowning’, championed by BBC 6Music’s Cerys Matthews and Steve Lamacq.
There are a limited number of hand-made CDs available to buy and the release is available for digital download. Visit the Wild Sound shop now to view.
Cerys Matthews was a champion of Oxx’s mesmeric 2015 album ‘First Aid for the Drowning’ on her Sunday BBC 6Music show, confessing she adored the whole album so much she was torn about which track to play…
‘Haul It Up’ may well give her a similar dilemma for 2016…..
