Themes like the banality and loneliness of life have consistently weighed heavy on 23-year-old London artist Matt Maltese’s records. Following his 2018 debut album Bad Contestant and acclaimed 2019 album Krystal, which endeared him to tastemaker outlets like NME, NPR, Line Of Best Fit, Vice and more, his appropriately titled new EP madhouse isn’t just a score for the everyday boredoms we encounter. It’s a musing on us human beings’ “ever-hopeful quest for meaning and love.” madhouse, like its predecessor Krystal, is another home birth - largely produced by Maltese himself, but with contributions from Bad Contestant producer Jonathan Rado (Weyes Blood, Whitney, Father John Misty) and Ben Baptie (Rex Orange County), plus The Lemon Twigs’ Brian D’Addario’s guitar and Sorry’s Asha Lorenz’s vocals on “Queen Bee.” Maltese has always nailed lonesome provocations with idiosyncratic dry wit but madhouse reckons with those emotions in a way the half British, half Canadian hasn’t yet fully explored until now. “I’ve found that sometimes the majority of the emotional journey of love and life is actually the search for an understanding of it. And these songs try and make peace with all of that, poke fun at it and, ultimately, embrace it.” - Matt Maltese

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
