Matthew Patterson Curry aka Safety Scissors, has developed from interesting musical roots: Matt took his first, highly adventurous steps into the music world in the experimental San Francisco electronic scene. His peers include illustrious names such as Kid 606, Kit Clayton, the avant-garde sound tinkerers Matmos, and the programming enthusiasts around the legendary music production software MAX/MSP. A good decade later, Matt can look back on two successful albums, festival appearances worldwide and numerous remixes, including those for Matmos, Grizzly Bear, and Architecture. In particular, Safety Scissors' second album Tainted Lunch, produced by Stefan Betke aka Pole, is regarded as a prime example of how experimental electronics and classic pop can be successfully combined. The 12 songs range from intricate indie-electronica, enriched with a playful chaos of noises, to poppy, minimal house tracks with catchy hooks, to sensitive singer-songwriter sketches and ethereal atmospheres. The beats -- whether in house-mode or using live drums for a more rocky feel -- are never merely functional: they always feel entirely devoted to the song. In a Manner of Sleeping is an album that can't be pigeon-holed -- any genre corset is burst open by its eclecticism and sudden surprises.
