Matmos: The Marriage of True Minds

Back in September, I told you a bit about Matmos’s The Ganzfeld EP, which blew my mind and promised many more great things to come.

It’s been a long wait, but The Marriage of True Minds, Matmos’s eighth full-length album, will be released by Thrill Jockey on February 19th. My complete review will appear in our April issue, but you can stream the entire album right now through Pitchfork Advance.

In typical Matmos fashion, the album is ambitious, wacky, fun, and wonderfully stimulating. It will be one of my favorite records of 2013, for sure. And, oh yeah, it also sounds amazing on the hi-fi.

But the record is probably best experienced in person. Matmos hits the road today, at Le Poisson Rouge, in NYC. If you can’t make it tonight, you have a few more options:

Tuesday, February 12: Boston, MA, The Sinclair
Wednesday, February 13: Montreal, QC, Il Motore
Thursday, February 14: Toronto, ON, The Garrison
Friday, February 15: Chicago, IL, Empty Bottle
Saturday, February 16: Minneapolis, MN, Cedar Cultural Center
Tuesday, February 19: Portland, OR, Doug Fir
Wednesday, February 20: Seattle, WA, Neumo’s
Thursday, February 21: Vancouver, BC, Media Club
Sunday, February 24: San Francisco, CA, Public Works

Thursday, February 28: Austin, TX, The ND
Saturday, March 2: Louisville, KY, Zanzabar
