Prettying Up The Place

As you can see, after many years of basic black, we’ve given the site a swank new look to go with the upcoming new album, “Supreme Balloon”. We’re still fixing up a few things here and there, so please excuse any broken links or missing content while we get things finished.


The Gum Drop, aka the weekly newsletter and exclusive MP3 download section of music blog Stereogum, is offering a new and unreleased Matmos MP3 this week. Titled “Unbeliever”, this track will not appear on “Supreme Balloon”, so go and grab it now, and then when the album comes out, you can put it on your iPod and tell all your unhip friends that it’s a bonus track from the rare Swiss edition of the album or something.

You can also find two tracks from “Supreme Balloon” in MP3 format if you know where to look. And in case you don’t know where to look, we’ll tell you that “Rainbow Flag” is available on Matador’s Matmos page, and “Polychords” is one of the tracks on the new Matador MP3 sampler “Intended Play: Spring 2008”.


On Thursday, April 17th, Drew will be giving a talk at Red Emma’s (800 St. Paul St., Baltimore) about his take on Throbbing Gristle’s most “accessible” album, “20 Jazz Funk Greats”, recently published in book form in Continuum‘s increasingly essential 33 1/3 series. The talk starts at 7:30 PM, but Drew will be DJing a Throbbing Gristly happy hour starting at 6:00 PM around the corner at Liam’s Pint Size Pub (911 N. Charles St.) to help lubricate the proceedings. And in case you need another reason to come, Red Emma’s be running a 10% sale on all 33 1/3 titles that evening!
