Listen: Match Fixer – II

angelee1Match 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.

Listen: Angel Eyes project Match Fixer

Angel Eyes’ 2013 Bedroom Suck release Final Fare is an album that just keeps growing the more I listen: as time goes by its swollen, austere beauty reveals new details. Match Fixer is not Angel Eyes, but it’s Angel Eyes’ Andrew Cowie making instrumental music that isn’t too dissimilar. Since Cowie has threatened on the Angel Eyes Facebook page that he’s going to take these recordings down in a week you’d better download them quick smart, if only to digest later. There seems to be some kinda corrupt cricket theme here, which is hilariously at odds with the music itself, but y’know, consume it however you like. Keep in mind these are demos, though.
