Multi-instrumentalist Matthew Hemerlein has drawn comparisons to Jeff Buckley with his subtle rhythmic pulses and trance-inducing layers of loops replete with plucked and strummed violins and guitars and evocative vocal delivery. He utilizes his classical training not as a crutch but as a jumping-off point to convey complex emotions with just the right blend of subtlety and upheaval.
