Matthew Herbert is set to release a box set of four of his best albums under his last name moniker plus a collection of previously unreleased early work. He has also released an artistic new video for his track 'Foreign Bodies' which was taken from his 2001 album 'Bodily Functions'.
The video features numerous bizarre images of skeletal bodies with a strong use of colour on a black background. While the term 'foreign body' is usually used to describe an object inside the body originally from outside of it, he uses it here to show bodies that are, indeed, foreign or alien. It is artistic but highly simple, much like the music itself which is another example of Herbert's talent for using everyday objects such as dripping taps to create music. It's a down tempo electronic number with a trippy edge to it; a great promotional piece for his new box set.
The collections on 'Herbert Complete' include 'Early Herbert' and albums '100lbs', 'Around The House', 'Bodily Functions' and 'Scale'; all his best work between 1996 and 2006. The newly designated director for The New Radiophonic Workshop who has gone under the name of Doctor Rockit, Radio Boy and, more recently, Wishmountain, is set to release the works through Accidental Records March 4th 2013 and it will also include photos, credits, video links and visuals.
