Avant-pop maestro Matthew Dear raised his profile considerably with 2010's excellent Black City. "In the Middle (I Met You There)" from Dear's new EP, Headcage, out January 17 via Ghostly, displays much of its predecessor's spooky R&B vibe, as Dear sings in a decadent Bowie-esque yowl over ghostly vocal samples, glassy keyboard lines, and a hard art-funk beat.
