Matmos have announced a new album. 'Plastic Anniversary' is out March 15 via Thrill Jockey. The record celebrates the duo’s anniversary as a couple. It was also recorded using exclusively “sounds derived from plastic objects.” According to a press release, the 11-track album aims to explore “the world's relationship to plastic—a material whose durability, portability, and longevity, while heralded by its makers, are the very qualities that make it a force of environmental devastation.”

new matmos album coming in october!
from thrill jockey press release:
Recorded in the basement studio of
their home in Baltimore, the album is constructed entirely out of the sounds
generated by a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II model washing machine. Like its
namesake, the album runs across its variations as a single, continuous thirty
eight minute experience that starts with the grinding turn of the wash size
selection wheel, and ends with the alert noise that signals that the wash is done.
"A new full length album, ‘The Marriage Of True Minds’, in 2013."
"As ambitious as their projects have been in the past, Matmos' new album may just represent their most difficult challenge to date - and certainly their most esoteric. The Marriage Of True Minds', so far four years in the making, sees Daniel and Schmidt moving beyond the sound of creatures or surgery for their sonic palette. Instead, they used the minds of composers, comrades and the occasional scribe - including your humble narrator - through a series of psychic experiments. In these experiments Drew attempts, under 'psientific conditions', to transmit the concept of the new album into their subject's mind. The band then record the perceived messages heard, and at least attempt to use those as a basis for composing pieces."
"However, the outcome of these experiments are still uncertain, as Schmidt and Daniel continue to examine to actually make this behemoth of an idea work. The Quietus caught up with the duo as they waxed lyrical about the new album, synthesisers, noise warehouses, Throbbing Gristle, and upsetting modern occultists with their non-committal commitment to psychic research."
"In order to facilitate the recreation of the exact perceptual circumstances of the original test subjects who participated in the Ganzfeld experiment, Thrill Jockey has teamed up with audio manufacturers Incase to release a limited edition of The Ganzfeld EP. All deluxe editions of The Ganzfeld EP will ship in a custom box with Matmos Ganzfeld logo printed on the outside. This is a pre-order for October 16th release - all orders will ship to arrive on or before that date. Deluxe headphone packages are VERY limited, so please get your pre-orders in ASAP."
