Matthew Mercer’s Salvo to be released March 4
My new solo album Salvo will be available on March 4 through most online music services including Bandcamp, Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, Emusic, Rhapsody, and more.
The album is a return to beatmaking after spending the last couple of years focused on ambient drones and scores. It’s a lateral move touching on dance music but with plenty of experimentation and variety to go around. Rhythm is the focus for most of these tracks, with a combination of randomized pattern-making and detailed arrangements.
You can preorder the album on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp; iTunes and Bandcamp preorders will immediately get the track “Bombs Away,” plus access to the album as soon as it’s available! Check it out, and, if you like what you hear, consider preordering to support my musical endeavors.
I made a whole series of sketches of the artwork for this one before settling on the leading image above; these 9 are just some of the variations.
