EDITORS’ NOTES

Matthew Herbert is a master of conceptual sound. For this 2001 album, that meant sourcing samples from everyday activities, like brushing teeth and cracking knuckles. But emotional resonance trumps studio trickery on these moody house tracks. They're part electronic and part jazz trio, and full of swirling keys, brushed drums, and the sweetly smoky voice of his then-partner, Dani Siciliano. Home to heartbreakers like "You're Unknown to Me" and "Leave Me Now," Bodily Functions is a sentimental gem for lovers and dreamers—the kind of album rainy Saturdays were made for.
