Musical eccentrics Matmos are back on Thrill Jockey with more high-concept funny business. On Ultimate Care II their electronic experiments are constructed entirely from sounds produced by, or on, their washing machine. With the help of some friends (including Dan Deacon) the sounds are processed, sampled, sequenced and mashed into oblivion. The results are complex percussive outbursts that bring to mind a more pop-inclined Autechre.

Matmos/ Die Monitr Bats
Let’s revisit a remarkable collaboration from 2002, when plunderphonic supremos People Like Us and Wobbly matched up with Matmos, the kings of high-concept, high-fun electronics. Wide Open Spaces documents a live performance themed around ‘country & western’, which naturally leads to a lot of enjoyable and entertaining sound juxtapositions. Good stuff, remastered and released on Discrepant.
