Matmos @ Paris


During this weekend, Leaky Sparrow and some Sparrow friends were all together at the Villette Sonique in Paris. It’s the first edition of an outside/inside festival located in a big green park with a mixture of old and new artists (Mugiso, Afrirampo, Andrew Bird, Stuart A. Staples, Faust…). Here is the first review:

Saturday, June 24th. Matmos at Parc de la Villette.

An absolutely beautiful, sunny and warm summer afternoon in Paris. Kicking off the music festival of mostly experimental music at this large eastern Parisian park was the San Francisco based (I think- couldn't find any real bio info on their web site?) duo Matmos. Exactly what it was I heard I'm not really sure about though. Soak a cat with gasoline, light it on fire, throw it in a garbage can, put the lid on, stick a microphone on the outside and voila… this might begin to describe what these guys are doing with sound. Loop-driven bass and drum thumps coupled with blips and bloops of "found sounds" (I love this new terminology for music!), keyboards, various percussion instruments all blended up via self controlled, on stage mixing boards by M.C. Schmidt and partner Drew Daniel deliver us the songs. Added and abetted by an interesting guitarist/noisemaker (no name and not introduced!) Matmos impressed me. They also changed my perception of what music was all about. AND I am still not exactly sure what it was I heard. It was defiantly in 4/4 time signatures though. I think…:/? Perfect for a sunny, Saturday afternoon. (I'm quite interested to hear how their records sound and look forward to that!).

Check them out!

Here is an mp3 from Matmos' latest album The Rose Has Teeth in the Mouth of a Beast which is available since May 9, 2006. The song is the first track on the album and is called Roses and Teeth for Ludwig Wittgenstein; it’s also the first track they played… with roses, of course!

The NFL’s “My Cause My Cleats” campaign in Week nfl jerseys store 13 was a rousing christian louboutin shoes success and went off without a Nike Air Max 90 hitch. (OK, mostly Nike Free Run without a hitch.) Dozens on players on the Nike Roshe Run 30 teams that wholesale nfl jerseys participated last week — the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns, on bye last week, can take NFL Jerseys part Sunday — opted to wear their specialized cleats to honor and reflect charitable and philanthropic louboutin outlet causes that christian louboutin uk were dear to each of their hearts. But it appears at least cheap nfl jerseys one player took part outside the spirit of the program. Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes
