“Famous Last Words (An Ode To Eaters) ” By Ethel Cain, The First Single From The Upcoming 1017 Alyx 9sm Compilation Vol.1 Curated By Matthew M. Williams



Matthew M. Williams has a long-standing history in music: from previously being a creative director for global artists to custom fashion show soundtracks and musical collaborations, alternative and subversive music cultures remains a continued focus for the designer's work. In collaboration with longtime friend, Alamo records founder & CEO Todd Moscowitz, the two joined forces to curate a project of original, avant-garde music around the latest 1017 ALYX 9SM collection.

With Ethel Cain’s “FAMOUS LAST WORDS (An ode to eaters)”, the first single of the upcoming 1017 ALYX 9SM Compilation Vol.1, Williams introduces his first mixtape project for the brand he founded in 2014.

Ethel Cain, The jaded daughter of a dead preacher-man caught in an exodus, Ethel Cain winds her way through a dizzying attempt at escape from her suffocating upbringing only to find herself crushed within its jaws in the end. Hayden Anhedönia, the woman behind the curtain, serves as the architect for the visceral and haunting world of Ethel Cain. Cain will release new music later this year, and continues to tour around the world including performances at Coachella, Outside Lands, Reading & Leeds, Roskilde, Rock en Seine and many other festivals and headline shows in the US, Australia, and Europe.

Produced by Alamo Records, the compilation will feature a selection of artists, curated by Matthew M. Williams, and will see singles dropping over the summer with the full compilation set to be released in early September
