Lonely Souls, the new six-song cassette from Mattress, has been released in a limited edition of 100 by Field Hymns, and it's a fine, weird iteration of Rex Marshall's lounge-singing apocalyptic preacher. His deep baritone effortlessly sidles through both balmy Blade Runner synths and disquieting glitchwork quilts, with the result sounding like Suicide decided their sound was too commercial and they wanted to make something truly strange, with Johnny Cash on vocals to boot. For whatever claustrophobic unease Mattress on record invokes—and it's a substantial amount—Marshall remains a riveting performer in the live setting, weaving and bobbing over his seasick sounds with the confidence of a seasoned tour guide. It's tough not to feel drawn in. Tonight also marks the vinyl re-release of Mattress' 2006 debut Eldorado via Malt Duck Records. NED LANNAMANN
