"Gray Owl Point - Matthew A. Wilkinson"

"In recent memory I’ve described albums as something like a religious experience, or perhaps noted something spiritual about a particular piece of music. When an artist name drops the archangel Michael and Jiddu Krishnamurti, you know you’re in for something big.

Matthew A. Wilkinson is a musician originally from Grande Prairie, Alberta, which is continually reinforcing the Alberta city’s image in my head as the “weird-yet-awesome” musical capital of Canada, though Wilkinson is now based in Winnipeg.

Wilkinson’s brand of weirdness comes from his ghostly musical setups ..." - gray owl point

"Silent Shout – Skyscrapers in Paris"

Part of a budding scene in far-north Grande Prairie, Alberta, Matthew A. Wilkinson makes great doomed electronic post-punk to confuse the soul. - Silent Shout

"Weird Canada – Post Namers"

That Post Namers is an album full of electronics seems at first like a departure within a departure, but actually makes perfect sense for somebody with a penchant for sacred imagery. Who, if not Wilkinson, with his predilections towards the sacred and profane, would benefit more from having the ability of make sound reverberate through limitless space and virtual cathedrals? Just as places of religious significance were architecturally designed for acoustics, Wilkinson erects 13 places of worship for his songs; each a unique spiritual monument, jutting upwards like some ecclesial finger and decorated with demented frescoes. Perhaps he recorded “Last Summer I Moved Venus” in the Hagia Spohia, where the holiest of Benedictine vocals float through reverent chambers of seemingly infinite dimensions. “Skyscrapers in Paris”, with its spindly Deceit guitars and unrelenting ghost chant, could have been recorded in the Wat Rong Khun or St. Basilica. Essential devotional listening. - Weird Canada

"Argue Job – Post Namers"

"I think I can declare without the slightest shade of doubt that Matthew A. Wilkinson is one of the most interesting song experimenters operating in this broad land at this time." - argue job


Each record has received regular airplay on CJSR, CJSW, and on campus stations across Canada, the US, Europe, and Australia. They have also been well-received on many blogs and were featured in many year-end best-of lists.

At an early age Matthew began covertly overthrowing the leadership of all the religious groups in his hometown of Grande Prairie, Alberta with the help of a Sufi clown and a Jesuit priest-turned-heroin addict. Today he lives in a palace in the basement of the United States Federal Reserve, where he is occasionally visited by the archangel Michael and the ghost of Jiddu Krishnamurti.
