The Standard Of Living
Album Released: 22 Oct 2007
Matthew Bayot's second album precedes his first ever European tour early next year supporting label mates and friends Puerto Muerto (Christa appeared on vocal on his 2005 debut 'Circling Buzzards' ("Perfection" - Drowned In Sound; "spell-binding" AtomicDuster)). Bayot moves on from the sunburned sitar-induced psychedlia of his his first offering to present at least 3 pop classics in 'The Claim', 'She Is Everything' and 'Requiem For A Scene'. A glorious return to Fires past you could say but The Standard Of Living is much more.
"..deceptively expressive... will connect in all sorts of mysterious ways."
