Boduf Songs is promoting the brand new album Burnt Up On Re Entry which is out now on CD and LP via Southern Records. The deluxe and heavyweight 180g version of the album comes in a gatefold sleeve, with three sides of music and the fourth side featuring a gorgeous etching. This really is a thing of great beauty.

To help raise awareness of this release and the forthcoming tour dates, Mat Sweet has created yet another video which The Quietus have premiered.

Mat Sweet radiates in mellow, electronic subtlety. Skittery clicks and manipulated samples add heat and light to plucked guitar and breathy voice on songs that evolve in space-time.” – MOJO

It opens up an entire new world for Sweet to explore, and is richest and most surprising Boduf release yet– PITCHFORK

This sounds like the great dark pop album of the ’90s that was never made.” – BRAINWASHED

This is a mighty piece of work that impressions with transcendental introspection via its play on words and renews trust by its depth of lyrics…The combinatory spectrographical and cultural bedrock of Indie is so vast now that any recouping of its thematic consistence is a boon to the modern listener.” – FLUID RADIO

All-round purveyor of haunting loveliness Boduf Songs is an artist who manages to deftly meld the sultry stroll of contemporary folk rock with a multitude of subtle nods to the lumbering unease of drone music in order to create a listening experience that’s both unique and wholly absorbing in nature…Burnt Up On Re-Entry contains some of his most skillfully crafted work to date, superbly honing in on his enduring ability to mix ethereal beauty with unwavering darkness as it they were one.” – TERRORIZER
