8/10 Ian Staff review, 21 November 2013

You may know Matt Elliott from his former affiliations with the Bristol space rock scene as founder and mainstay of noisy drum and bass pioneers The Third Eye Foundation as well as major contributions to classic records by Flying Saucer Attack and Movietone.

This background  was enough to inspire me to say a few words about this new solo album. With a few darkly folky records under his own name on the Ici D’ailleurs label this album certainly lives up to the quality of his past work.

Reading back on reviews of his previous solo albums it would seem that this is a lot more accessible, with nice acoustic tinkling and an almost mediterranean feel to the instrumentation. Vocally Matt sits somewhere between Stuart Staples (Tindersticks) and  Nick Drake with a lower register. Musically very polished and professional, Matt’s guitar and vocals are accompanied by double bass, Rhodes and Wurlitzer which make for quite a vintage sound. Beautifully produced, the album has an organic feel with lightly brushed drums and beautiful close mic’d guitar pickings.

You certainly can’t deny that ‘Only Myocardial Infarction Can Break Your Heart’ is a fantastic title, and medically accurate too!
