Biography by Heather Phares
Under the name Boduf Songs, Southampton, England's Mat Sweet records spare, haunting music based in the traditions of British folk, embellished with subtle sound effects that add an even more evocative feel. Working on his own and with friends, Sweet released a wide variety of music on his Bluebaby label, spanning sounds from heavy rock to abstract electronic pieces. In 2004, Sweet made the first Boduf Songs demos, which he recorded on his own with a handful of equipment that included a toy piano, field recordings, his computer, and acoustic guitar. Kranky was impressed enough with the demo that they released it as is the following year as Boduf Songs. In 2006, Sweet returned with Lion Devours the Sun, which further refined his stripped-down, eerie, and sometimes darkly humorous sound. Sweet recorded 2008's How Shadows Chase the Balance late at night with just a microphone.
