Operating as Machine Listener, Matthew Gallagher continues the time-space shifting work they've been developing for the better part of the last decade. Headfooter follows tapes on Moon Villain and Hasau Mountain, and finds Gallagher bending existence around sign posts, pixelating memories from early adulthood, peeling the faces off of billboards and recording the panicked conversations that happen as they fall. Fried confusion meets up with chunky, ectoplasmic beats and dream sequences reminiscent of the strangest peaks of the late '90s WARP Records catalog. As often as Machine Listener sounds like the brainwaves of shady figures lurking in darkness, Gallagher also steps into the light with moments of questioning beauty and reflections of hard-fought peace.
