Matthew Dear//Hands Up for Detroit

What could be more Michigan than co-founder of Ghostly Records Matthew Dear’s blend of avant-pop and minimalist techno? Nothing. That’s what.

Ghostly was an Ann Arbor success story and institution— and one to really be proud of, like All Music Guide…or Zingerman’s. I’m not sure when exactly this song hit my consciousness, but I was definitely living in Ann Arbor and feeling the MI love. That worked out great, because feeling the MI love is what this song is all about. Although I still can’t figure out if the second lyric section is “our lovely city” or “I love this city.” Good thing it doesn’t really matter.
