about

Sliding into your tape deck with shifting polyrhythms, woozy arpeggiations, and a distinctly nonlinear approach to composition, Matthew Ryals hits you with the sickness, the cure, and the spoonful of sugar all at once.

Curious and playful yet intentional and masterful, "Machine Memory" bridges the divide between electronic music's two most common poles - dancefloor ecstasy and stoic experimentalism, resulting in a full-throated endorsement of the possibilities of electronics without limiting itself to a particular camp.

--

All music written, performed, and produced by Matthew Ryals at home in Brooklyn, NY and Cleveland, OH
