Supreme Balloon by Matmos
Sorry, this product is no longer available to order


The new album from Matmos finds the dynamic duo of M. C. Schmidt and Drew Daniel taking a holiday from their usual tightly structured conceptual music making process and skipping their outré sampling antics, in favour of making a lighthearted “cosmic pop” record made entirely out of synthesizers – and ONLY synthesizers.

That’s right, on Supreme Balloon, the duos 7th album, there are no household objects played in a percussive manner, no snails or blood or amplified semen and they’re not even half-way cheating with Vocoders, just synthesizers of all shapes, sizes and eras, reshuffled by an arsenal of samplers and computers into colorful sound-origami.

To break it down: while the album’s high point is the album’s title track, a 24min monster synth jam that builds into a celestial, psychedelic epic whose spiralling arpeggios recall Cluster, Mother Mallard and Vangelis, Supreme Balloon is in fact, quite possibly the most accessible Matmos album yet. And that’s really saying something!
