Matmos - Steam & Sequins for Larry Levan

This is a bit of a mystery to me, I know who Matmos is but I'm not sure where this record is from but I'm assuming it is coming out on a new album at some point in the very near future. Matmos are of course American cut and paste producers whose work is as clever as it it bonkers, the majority of which would part a dancefloor like Moses but play their records at an afterparty and everyone and their dog wants to know what has just tickled their ears. I actually prefer Drew Daniels' The Soft Pink Truth stuff but this is a perfect example of what made Matthew Herbert to sign them to his Accidental label a few years ago. To be honest, I haven't quite made my mind up about this one - what do you think?

Great tune!
It's from their LP, 'The Rose Has Teeth In The Mouth Of A Beast' that came out in 2006.

its off of The Rose Has Teeth, their album before last (10 concrète gay icon sound portraits). They're more dancefloor inspired than oriented I think. California Rhinoplasty is the most housey thing.
