Boduf Songs is the name taken by Mat Sweet. Boduf Songs was Sweet's first attempt at recording himself playing his own songs, using a sparse variety of instruments. Mostly vocal and guitar oriented, it would be easy to confuse him with singer-songwriters. But Sweet's compositions are way more bleak and abrasive than what most people associate with the genre.
Sweet has a profound love for loud and heavy music, which he takes in the exact opposite direction with Boduf Songs. It's hard to come up with more extreme quiet bands - He proves that quiet and introspective is a whole different thing than soft.
Thusfar, Boduf Songs did 4 full lengths (all on the Kranky label), and a handful of very diverse EPs, on labels as Under The Spire, Bluesanct or Latitudes. As you can tell from the song titles, Internal Memo is to be consumed as a whole. Temping and the three songs with memo in the title are the key songs. People familiar with the first records will be happy to hear a few stripped down songs, while the b-side marks the return of the piano that had such an important role in setting the tone for the last album. The other tracks manage to bind the mini-album together. This limited 10" is the first release by Boduf Songs that was entirely created since Mat Sweet moved from the UK to Toledo, OH. 200 copies were made, in beautiful jackets, designed by Sweet himself, and printed in lush silver ink on black paper by Druckwerkstatt in Aachen, Germany.
Tracks:
1. Temping
2. Under unborn mouth place
3. Internal memo
4. Howl to capitulate undone hours
5. Infernal memo
6. Eternal memo.
