Caroline True Records (CTR) has joined forces with celebrated and revered UK artist and illustrator Matt Sewell in creating a unique, eclectic new album release, Matt Sewell's A Crushing Glow.
A little known fact is that Matt is also a dedicated and knowledgeable music aficionado and music collector. A regular contributor to the Caught By The River website, a painter of walls around the world and the bird brain behind the bestselling books Our Garden Birds, Our Songbirds and Our Woodland Birds. ACG gives an intriguing insight into Matt's world and his art via his musical choices.
This diverse album, featuring many tracks never before released on vinyl or else long deleted, develops over 13 tracks through the pastoral Post-Punk of The Durutti Column, the bucolic pop of Parsley Sound to the panoramic Kosmique of Ashra. Re-imagined edits from Lobt Noch Irrt, the Acid of Tin Man via the indo-prog of the Third Ear Band.

“I felt that Matt would choose some great tracks for the album – freedom to put together the compilation that he wanted without any genre limitations. A voyage of musical discovery. He has done exactly that. “
