“Matmos is an extended meditation on the musical potential of weird noises. Integrating a range of distinctly non-musical sound sources (hair, breath, crustacean brain activity, etc.) into familiar contemporary forms such as electro, jungle, techno, and dubby downtempo breakbeat… Terrifically strange.” – AllMusic
The self-titled debut from the Baltimore-via-San Francisco duo Matmos (Drew Daniel and M.C. Schmidt) was originally released on their own Vague Terrain label in 1997, and was re-released by Matador on this day in 2000.
