sample the album:
"Matchmakers Volume 2: The Music Of Sade (Barnyard Records, 2012) is the long-awaited follow-up release to The Reveries' Matchmakers Volume 1: The Music Of Willie Nelson (Rat-drifting, 2007). An unlikely pairing of artists, you might say. Well, these two artists are considered by The Reveries to be two of the very finest crafters of popular love ballads, which is the only kind of music that The Reveries choose to play. Sure, The Reveries do have speakers in their mouths when they sing (which amplify and wah each others' instruments while making it difficult for them to pronounce words accurately) and they do use a number of unconventional and home-made instruments, so at first listen their renditions may not seem the most romantic music in the world. But there is true love all over their garbled, exotic meanderings. Much like love, The Reveries embody adventure, experimentation, playfulness, intimacy, reverence, co-operation, sacrifice, and suffering.
The Reveries are Eric Chenaux (electric guitar, harmonica, voice, mouth-speaker), Ryan Driver (street-sweeper bristle bass, thumb-reeds, mouth-microphone, voice, mouth-speaker), Doug Tielli (electric guitar, nose-flute, saw, voice, mouth-speaker), and Jean Martin (electric and acoustic drums).
With Matchmakers Volume 2, The Reveries offer their unprecedented revisionings of such lovely hits as No Ordinary Love and Kiss Of Life, among seven other delights from Sade's gorgeous catalogue of pop masterpieces. Each of the songs here appeared in its original Sade version on either Love Deluxe (Epic Records, 1992) or Lovers Rock (Epic Records, 2000). We sincerely hope you will feel the love within this music, within yourself, within all things, outside of all things, and everywhere beyond."-Barnyard Records
