and Matmos for my money suck clams, although that's
probably something they'd sample...
npimh: Massive Attack "Mezzanine"
- Well, I think Matmos is >the balls<, and have been playing "and silver light
popped in his eyes" either in whole (18 minutes - ack!) or in part on my show
periodically since it came out. And I'm not alone. it >always< yields a "WHO
IS THIS????" phone call or two everytime i play it.
I just like their textures and imperfections. Though ive always liked teh
coldness and non-human quality that electronic music has offered, Matmos have
managed to exploit while superimposing a more organic sound over it to come up
with something entirely different.
my two cents --

>do they sound like?
>> Arovan - Occer/Silicad 7"
>> Lexaunculpt - Double Density 12"Courtesy of FE/Hvratski:
"Lexaunculpt is 19 year-old Alex Graham, a resident of the city of
Orange. Quickly gaining attention for his first 12" released on
Isophlux earlier this year and in Southern California for his amazing
live sets, we feel that Lexaunculpt's record for Orange announces the
arrival of a major new talent in electronic music in the US. Combining
elements of hip-hop with highly complex digital rhythms, Lexaunculpt
is guaranteed to leave the most jaded trainspotters impressed "
Hope this helps [2/5]...
