Animal Flag frontman Matthew Politoski releases sprawling solo album

Animal Flag frontman Matthew Politoski releases sprawling solo album

Matthew Politoski, frontman of the beloved Boston indie rock group Animal Flag, has released a sprawling instrumental solo album titled 8 Emanations, his first in over two years. The instrumental drones on 8 Emanations are entirely devoid of lyricism, or melody for that matter, and instead focus on ethereal and enveloping soundscapes, built using various acoustic and electronic instruments. Politoski’s newest work draws on influences ranging from European electronica and witch house music, displaying intuitive structures to darkly emotive and deeply stirring harmonic movements. The result is an incredibly warm and strangely inviting body of work that will take any Animal Flag fan by surprise. Stream and purchase 8 Emanations below, where all the proceeds will be donated to the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. -Charley Ruddell
