the pair’s bizarre foray into wonky electronic experimentalism is a wonderfully eccentric and trippy ride that we want to take over and over again.

‘Plastic Anniversary’, was created using only plastic. Highlighting the crises of convenience, the duo makes 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 MC Schmidt’s own ‘plastic’ anniversary as a couple. Fans of surgeon, iglooghost and jameszoo should check this out! “The ability to draw a sharp outline around the unfamiliar, to draw definition from abstraction, is something Matmos excel at” – Pitchfork.
