"Supreme Balloon" by Matmos (2008)
CLASSIC ALBUM OF THE WEEK
Matmos "Supreme Balloon"  2008 (USA)
In the grand tradition of electronic music duos (Perrey & Kingsley, Margouleff & Cecil, Hütter & Schneider, Moebius & Roedelius), Matmos is Martin Schmidt & Drew Daniel, who are "partners in life" as well as music. They have been making interesting, often high-concept, electronic music for 25 years now. Some of their conceptual records include one that uses all sound samples from medical procedures, one that uses all sounds made by plastic items, one that uses only the sounds of the washing machine in their basement(!), and even an "Americana" album called The Civil War! The concept behind Supreme Balloon is old fashioned analog synthesizer sounds, making it sound like an avant-garde kosmische pop album from the 1970's.
