Analog Supremacy


Matmos, the fantastic duo known for their unique, exploratory adventures into the deeper realms of experimental electronic music, have released a tantalizing, yet very accessible new album, Supreme Balloon. Rubbery, gurgling synths, and syncopated, arpeggiated melodies ebb and flow, guided by sparkling filter sweeps, and a myriad of sonic delights splashing about and bubbling with pure analog goodness. Fans of Mouse on Mars, Plaid, Autechre, and especially Aphex Twin's Richard D. James Album should definitely enjoy what Matmos have served up with their latest full length effort. The colorful and superb Supreme Balloon is out now on Matador Records.
