Chad Matheny, who Alternative Press described as "a spastic, legally blind, nomadic songwriter whose performances transform venues/living rooms/arts spaces into punk rock micro-raves," has been releasing music under the Emperor X moniker since 1998. His recordings and live shows fuse the punk songwriter tradition of Billy Bragg with the experimental tape loop minimalism of William Basinski, and reveal incurable obsessions with transportation infrastructure, modernist literature, and lo-fi Chicago house tracks. Consequences of Sound called the resulting 12 critically-accalimed albums and EPs "a radical, challenging, and sometimes baffling discography." Featuring subversive lead single "Wasted on the Senate Floor," his new album Oversleepers International finds Matheny taking yet another left turn and recording as a "wedding band power trio" with Sebastian Samsa on bass and Rudi Maier on drums.
