Fluid Radio reviews Moments Before by Matt Bartram

‘Moments Before’ casts Matt Bartram on a sea full of low slung shoe gazed waves and anti static walls of noise. I reviewed his fourth record ‘The Dreaming Invisible’ for this site in 2013. Back then I was wondering how he made such a big sound out of small means. Now I imagine I can […]

Texura reviews Matt Bartram’s “Moments Before”

With the volume amped high, finding a way to achieve clarity in the mix and differentiation between elements poses an […]

Most of the entries in said series can be characterized as ambient, as can […]

Leonard’s Lair reviews Matt Bartram’s “The Dreaming Invisible…….”

Once of Air Formation and The Static Silence, Bartram has offered more than a decade of good service to the shoegaze genre. For his latest album though, he has applied certain constraints.
