A bit more about Matthew Sullivan from DJ egroeg:

For the last ten years Matthew Sullivan has worked under a number of monikers (Privy Seals, Earn), as well as a member in several collaborative projects (alongside Sean McCann, 1958-2009, The Compass Rose, etc.) in realms of ambient, drone,  noise, digital and acoustic based sound collage and cassette music. In 2012 he collaborated with Sean McCann on the critically acclaimed "Vanity Fair" LP on the Recital label. His work as Earn combines influences of noise, ambient, tape collage, shoegazer and dream pop.  2013 saw the LP reissue of "Hell On Earth" on North Carolina's Bathetic label. Originally an extremely limited cassette release from 2011, "Hell On Earth" is some of his strongest ambient work to date. His "A Following Shadow" LP on Dean Spunt of No Age's PPM imprint received kind words from several media outlets including The Fader who says the album "never sounds overly manufactured or insultingly simple, instead it feels like a complex, belabored piece of art". Sullivan has run the seminal cassette label Ekhein since 2007 releasing material from artists like Keith Fullerton Whitman, Rene Hell, Geoff Mullen, and many, many more.  His work in 1958-2009 with Mirror To Mirror's Alex Twomey has received praise from NPR's Lars Gotrich who named the duo's "II" release as best cassette of 2011. Sullivan has toured alongside acts like Infinite Body, Rene Hell, Mirror To Mirror amongst others.  He currently resides in Los Angeles and is finishing an LP under his birth name for the Spectrum Spools imprint. --DJ egroeg
