Indie88’s very own on-air host Matt Hart has released new music today through his indie-pop project The Russian Futurists. Hart hasn’t released any music since 2010’s album The Weight’s On The Wheels, but today his a new EP/mixtape called Reality Burger With A Side Of Life has been released.
“I put out my last actual record in 2010 and never stopped making music, doing it for fun makes the music infinitely more satisfying,” Hart explains in a statement. “I have hundreds of unfinished songs and these are the ones that seemed to deserve my attention. I’ve always loved making sample-based music and this project is a snapshot of what I get up to on most nights with my sampler. I’ve always wanted the Russian Futurists to be the sound of me with too many drinks etc. in my system in my basement; the distillation of Eric B. & Rakim, the Alchemist, and the Cocteau Twins all hanging out around a bunch of dusty records.”
The EP includes seven tracks and is 16 minutes long, featuring a collaboration with fellow Toronto producer Swim Good Now.
