The incomparable duo Matmos have done it again. Their new album, ‘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, polyethene 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.

Matmos glide from the tongue-in-cheek fun of ‘Breaking Bread’ (literally smashing Bread LPs) to Cronenbergian body-horror of ‘Interior With Billiard Balls & Synthetic Fat’. The album is playful and poppy while conveying a very serious message and on the darker implications of ignoring the havoc we are imposing on the earth all for the sake of convenience.

CD packaged in mini-LP style gatefold jacket made of 100% recycled material, with 6-panel booklet printed on ethically sourced paper.

LP packaged in jacket made of 100% recycled material, with artworked inner sleeve printed on ethically sourced paper.

Also available on teal mashup coloured vinyl.
