Nowy album Pomysłowych Dobromirów. Nagrany w całości z wykorzystaniem... plastiku. Pełna pomysłów nieco połamana muzyka elektroniczna, acz nagrana z sercem!
The incomparable duo, Matmos, have done it again! Their new album, Plastic Anniversary, was created using only plastic. Highlighting the crises of convenience, the Duo make music from our refuse. True to form, the band have assembled a promiscuous array of examples of this sturdy-yet-ersatz family of materials: Dominos, Styrofoam coolers, police riot shields, polyethylene waste containers, PVC panpipes, pinpricks of bubble wrap, pills, silicone gel breast implants and most horrifically synthetic human fat. Where did this idea come from Drew Daniels and M.C, Schmidts own plastic' anniversary as a couple. Matmos glide from the tongue-in-cheek fun of Breaking Bread' (literally smashing Bread LPs) to Cronenbergian body-horror of Interior with Billiard Balls & Synthetic Fat.' The album is playful and poppy while conveying a very serious message and on the darker implications of ignoring the havoc we are imposing on the earth all for the sake of convienience. A super special limited edition set will come with a sculptural album, embedded with plastic bottles, that while is the actual album, is rendered viruatlly unplayable by the pastic floating within. This edition also includes the album on a exclusive multi color mashup vinyl, a t-shirt, and a bonus track, all exclusive to the box. All proceeds from this special edition will benefit The Ocean Cleanup.
The sounds on Plastic Anniversary were solely derived from plastic objects.
The ability to draw a sharp outline around the unfamiliar, to draw definition from abstraction, is something Matmos excel at...' - Pitchfork
One of the most purely enjoyable albums I've heard re- cently - more so than most of the purely electronic works I stumbled across -- must come from this interweaving of the real and the power of the virtual. ' - The Wire
