Matt Middleton

Matt Middleton, otherwise known as Crude, a founding member of the Aesthetics and now part of the live Spacedust ensemble, Middleton is an increasingly productive guy, with a distinct approach to lo-fidelity, trash-electro or screaming noise – Middleton has traversed a catelogue of genres, and brings a distinct sound to every style he tries.

Ohm is a quartet that includes Campbell Kneale as well as Stefan Neville of Pumice. Their Live at the Crown, packaged within a hilarious upside-down variation on the Who’s Maximum R’n’B logo, is one of the most beautiful albums i’ve heard this year. With live drone and drum improv of the highest order, ohm create a wistfully psychedelic feel. there’s an astonishing chemistry and compositional sensibility within their improvisational method. Nicely recorded and beautifully played, Ohm show extraordinary mastery over their instruments with brilliant drumming patterns. their overall sound rivals the best of the Dead C and Thela‘s improv work.
