Tom Mraz This album rates in my top ten of all time. I can always come back to this colourful and textural gem when I need some solace and beauty. For me it's the absolute perfect culmination of Matthew Coopers talents, and I hope he pursues this angle of sound further. A true masterpiece in my opinion. Favorite track: Cease To Know.

about

The long-awaited follow-up to the acclaimed Copia, Eluvium takes a courageous creative leap withSimiles, an 8-song album featuring three key musical elements previously uncharted by Eluvium: percussion, a verse-chorus song structure, and singing. For a celebrated experimental musician, it was just about the bravest and scariest direction to go. In this way, Similes is the most truly experimental Eluvium album yet, and also the most accessible. Written, performed and recorded as always by Matthew Cooper in his own Watership Sounds studio, Similes marries Eluvium's trademark dream-like aura with Cooper's unique, laconic vocals, akin to an especially contemplative Ian Curtis with trace reflections of Magnetic Fields and Brian Eno. It is the most daring - and ultimately most rewarding - work of Eluvium's impressive and prolific career.
