Matmos - Plastic Anniversary Teal

Matmos

Plastic Anniversary Teal

Release date: March 15, 2019
Label: Thrill Jockey
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.
