Bradley Siefert Matthew Brewer (Frameworks) is on the Loci label along with Emancipator and you can hear the similarities. (I also hear a hint or two of Zero 7.) I can't pick a favorite track - it keeps changing typically based on what I last listened to. Wonderful vocals and warm, engaging instrumentation. Just a fantastic album.

Lo Tide Such amazing talent on display! Loving every minute of this album. So much emotion is captured in each layer of each song. Favorite track: Dawn ft. Rioghnach Connolly.

Ben Weltman Found this album recently and was blown away by the track Tides. Incredible piece of music. The rest of the album is also really great, particularly like a New Sun and Music Box. Favorite track: Tides.

about

‘Tides’ is the debut album from Manchester-based producer Matt Brewer aka Frameworks. Since the release of his first EP ‘Vanish’ back in 2012, Frameworks has been building a loyal following for his atmospheric and haunting compositions.

‘Tides’ sees him joining the dots between instrumental hip hop heroes Aim and RJD2, the epic soundscapes of Cinematic Orchestra and the deft songwriting of Bonobo.

Previous collaborators Rioghnach Connolly and JP Cooper return for the album with two tracks apiece. Rioghnach gives a captivating vocal performance on lead single ‘Calm The Still Night’ and the brooding ‘Dawn’, whilst JP (recently signed to Island Records) brings raw soul to ‘Old Friend’ and ‘No Place To Hide Away’.

The bedrock of the album is instrumental with Frameworks’ trademark string-laden productions taking in cinematic jazz (‘Patience’), folk (‘End’) and more uptempo fare in the shape of ‘Breathing Light’ and ‘A New Sun’. Tides’ shows just how accomplished Frameworks is as a producer and composer, showing a lightness of touch and genuine song-writing talent that few can emulate.
