Matt Kivel released a record called “Double Exposure” with the record label Olde English Spelling Bee in October of last year. His album “Days of Being Wild” was released July 8th on Woodsist.

“Matt Kivel’s Double Exposure is a small masterpiece of humble virtues: warm, patient, calm. It is beautifully, pristinely recorded, finely wrought; its ten songs represent some of the least insistent music you will be spellbound by all year.

The muffled boom of the bass drum on “White Rice”, the pearly piano notes, ringing down a long hallway in “Rainbow Trout,” the humming—insect looping guitars that swarm through “All Will Be Well,” the small bursts of static at the edges of “Days of Heaven”—each touch registers like an event within the hallowed space that Kivel creates. The album doesn’t so much grow on you as accrete, like daytime shadow creeping across the room. It’s been seven months since I first tried to puzzle out Double Exposure, and it keeps eluding me. I don’t know when I’ll want to stop trying, but not soon.” — Jayson Greene (Pitchfork)
