Herbert – Bodily Functions

One of the finest house albums of the past decade, Matthew Herbert’s Bodily Functions, is getting a special edition re-release to celebrate its 11th anniversary. The first disc is practically unchanged, while the second disc collects the remixes that were previously available on several vinyl releases only, including the brilliant Recloose version of Leave Me Now and Jamie Lidell’s outlook to his Multiply album that followed years later.

Known best as a conceptual artist, Herbert used sounds from the body’s organs to create the record and added vocals by his then-wife Dani Siciliano and Shingai Shoniwa on top of that. The album has been included to Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and ranks #16 on Resident Advisor‘s top 100 of that decade.
