Mathien - The Freedom Tapes

Posted January 26, 2015

Last year, Chris Mathien parted ways with his label home, Midwest Music. Far from grieving the split, though, the Windy City singer/songwriter felt liberated and anxious to get started on The Freedom Tapes, the project he'd long wanted to create.

After an attempt in the form of 2014's Unique Man LP, which Mathien ultimately renamed due to its lack of cohesiveness, the set has finally come to fruition. Heralded by lead single “Wurlitzer Crowley,” a cut dedicated to a woman in London whom the artist is dating, the project is entirely written and produced by Mathien. The artist also provides all instrumentation with the exception of the live drums, which come courtesy of DrumDrops.

Released January 20, The Freedom Tapes is available now for free streaming in The DJBooth, as well as being purchasable via Bandcamp.
