Matt Berry - Music For Insomniacs
Available 25th January 2019, via Acid Jazz
Originally released in 2014, Matt Berry’s ‘Music For Insomniacs’ was an exploration into Matt’s love of the classic electronic experimentation of the 1970s, typified by the recordings of both Jean Michel Jarre and Mike Oldfield.
With the original vinyl issue being limited to 500 units and never being repressed, Acid Jazz Records are making a special blue vinyl reissue available.
On release, ‘Music For Insomniacs’ was critically acclaimed, receiving four star reviews in Mojo, The Times and The Sunday Times and the following acclamations from the NME - “much too good to fall asleep to” and Shindig - “quite brilliant”. Intrigued by the work, Jean Michel Jarre asked Matt to work with him on a track and also involved Matt in his career retrospective podcast.
This reissue comes on the back of the widespread success of Matt’s latest album ‘TV Themes’, which charted in the UK Top 40 and was almost universally acclaimed by Will Hodgkinson in The Times to David Holmes and The Orb. A BAFTA Award-winning actor, Matt is currently filming two new TV series but will be back in the studio during 2019.
