Jun 16, · Herbert's love of unconventional sound sources does appear on The Shakes, for which he sampled protest marches and, on the track "Safety," created percussion with used bullets. His affinity for plush sounds that go straight to your pleasure centers is in full force—The Shakes is worth hearing for the/5.
Jun 01, · A shame. I rarely write reviews, but this album deserves some praise. One of my favorite artists without a doubt. I've been a fan of Matthew's for years. Although I don't crossover into his experimental albums under his "Matthew Herbert" name, I still recognize his talent and ambition. Around The House, Bodily Functions, Scale and now The Shakes.
Daniel Sylvester of Exclaim! gave the album an 8 out of 10, saying, "The Shakes is nonetheless brimming with alien sounds and left-field rhythms (culled from objects purchased on eBay), proving that even the most subdued Herbert release is still pretty damn fascinating."Genre: Electronic.
