Match Fixer is a side project of Angel Eyes’ Andrew Cowie. The first Match Fixer material released last July in the form of a (now removed) 2013 Cricket Scandal EP, but now we have news that an official release is in the works, namely a split cassette with Glass Bricks due later this year through Altered States Tapes.
The below embedded track, simply titled ‘II’, will feature on the split cassette. So far Match Fixer has demonstrated a darker and more dense alternative to Cowie’s Angel Eyes work and this is no exception. Its sampled choral vocals and distorted snares sound close to industrial in spirit, with a chilliness that stands in contrast with Angel Eyes’ warm and welcoming productions.
2014 also holds the promise of new Angel Eyes material, so keep an eye out for that.
