Matthew And The Atlas Announce Details Of Debut Album 'Other Rivers' Released On 14th April 2014

Matthew & The Atlas, the moniker of British musician Matt Hegarty, is pleased to announce details of his debut album. 'Other Rivers' will be released on 14th April through Communion Records, and is produced by Story Books' Kristofer Harris and Bear's Den/Communion's own Kev Jones. The album was recorded at Squarehead Studios in Kent in late 2013.

The 10 track record marks a fresh perspective for Hegarty's songwriting since his first EP releases through the fledgling Communion label back in 2011. Building on those primarily acoustic early outings, the new sound is enriched with the buzz and hum of both electronic and live beats.

The album also features a number of guests from the extended Communion family, including the production pair on multiple instruments, and the vocal of Australian Matt Corby on 'Another Way'.

It's a benignly British record, but has a texture more in common with the learned likes of US contemporaries Bill Callahan, Justin Vernon, and Will Oldham.

Other Rivers is a moving, full-bodied piece of work that requires an investment of time to truly appreciate its deftness of touch, but crucially it introduces a new British songwriter with an ear for something more wholesome than simply a keening melody or two. Invest wisely.

Tracklisting: Into Gold, Pale Sun Rose, To The North, Out Of The Darkness, Counting Paths, Everything That Dies, Nowhere Now, A Memory Of You, Old Ceremony, Another Way
