Last time I mentioned Portland multi-instrumentalist Matt Carlson it was in the context of Golden Retriever, the duo of Carlson and Jonathan Sielaff. More specifically, I spoke on last year's Emergent Layer cassette on NNA Tapes, a killer piece of synthesizer stutter and cavernous clarinet. Carlson's 2012 starts off right with his debut vinyl release Particle Language, out now on Draft Records. M.K. Youngblood posted “The Perceptron” for stream on Visitation Rites so check that out then sample some highlights from all the free Matt Carlson material I've digested over the past few days below. Now I wait patiently to year that entire Golden Retriever record Thrill Jockey released last year that I didn't hear about til now (album preview also below).
