Matthew Friedberger - Matricidal Sons Of Bitches

In October, Fiery Furnace Matthew Friedberger is set to release Matricidal Sons Of Bitches, a high-concept piece based on the films of Poverty Row. It’s a massive undertaking — the album consists of 45 tracks, sequenced as movements — and he’ll be documenting the process and its inspirations at a new blog. Thrill Jockey memorably bills it as “a horror movie made so economically that the film itself is unneccesary.” Today, we have the dramatic intro track, an instrumental sequence utilizing vocal samples called “”Ladies-in-Waiting – Waiting Forever I. The Neighbors.” Download it below.

  1. I hate when indie artists sell out and try to go mainstream…
