Black City is Matthew Dear at his least penetrable and most alluring. If the David Bowie comparisons were to continue, the album would place him somewhere in Lodger territory.

Beams is the fifth studio album by Matthew Dear. It was released via Ghostly International in 2012. Clash placed it at number 28 on its list of the "Top 40 Albums of 2012". MusicOMH named it the 3rd best album of 2012.

Matthew Dear – Black City. on August 17, 2010, 8:00am. Some of the most interesting work on Black City is the least danceable, positioning Dear amongst Apparat, Telefon Tel Aviv, and Ellen Allien as an artist who’s confident enough to employ texture as a driving force in lieu of redundant 4/4 rhythms. His detailed focus is impeccable, aligning a wide-variety of organic and electronic sounds in a dark sound world that remarkably underpins the deep drawl of his vocals.

Black City can't be found on any map. It's a composite, an imaginary metropolis peopled by desperate cases, lovelorn souls, and amoral motives. Like most literary gothams, Black City is a place to love and hate, as seedy as a nightclub's back room and as seductive as the promise of power. For his fourth album, Matthew Dear travels to the BLACK CITY and discovers some mellow blues in "Honey" before the angular funk of "I Can't Feel" creeps up your spine. The smoother, if idiosyncratic, house of "Little People (Black City) helps even out the mood, though, while "Slowdance" brings down the tempo and a sliding sense of romance.
