Dearly Beloved.

October 10, 2008

Matthew Dear and his three-piece Big Hands band are kicking off their North American tour, alongside the formidable Telefon Tel Aviv. Later this month, Dear plays CMJ with his band as well as a live set (as Audion) at the Ghostly / Throne of Blood Halloween party in New York City.

In release news, this fall sees Dear’s catalog remixed by his peers and heroes DJ Sneak (on The Robsoul Remixes EP) and The Juan Maclean (on the Pom Pom EP). Dear has also completed a new edition of the Get Physical mix series Body Language, due out in November. Dear discusses the summer that was and his new mix (while dropping a few hints about his future plans) in this extended Self-Titled magazine interview. Derek Plaslaiko compiles his faves of the Dear oeuvre on this exclusive XLR8R podcast.
