“When I hear these songs, I can still feel the rooms they were recorded in.” — Thom WasluckFor Planning for Burial’s Thom Wasluck, Matawan, New Jersey, represents a location and an era. It is the first place that truly felt like home to him, where he affectionately named his home and studio the “Red House.” In this house he recorded his first two albums, and a wealth of lesser known material in between. Matawan - Collected Works 2010-2014 showcases the songs from this period that were released outside of his full-length albums.During the four-year interval between Planning for Burial’s first full-length Leaving (2010, Music Ruins Lives) and his second album Desideratum (2014, The Flenser), Wasluck was hard at work writing and recording music for over a dozen EPs and splits with likeminded artists. This is a compilation of the now out-of-print and sought-after material from this period, including several previously unreleased tracks. All twenty tracks have been mastered specifically for this release, which has a running time of nearly two hours.Since the beginning, Planning for Burial has been a solo endeavor. Wasluck has been producing music by himself in a home studio and touring extensively as a one-man band, playing hundreds of shows in both DIY spaces and nightclubs, where he has shared the stage with acts like Deafheaven, King Woman and Chelsea Wolfe. Both incredibly loud and intimate, his music plays with an unrivaled passion and funereal grace that is equally at home in basements and large venues.
