Song of the Day - July 25, 2006

Matmos released their latest album, The Rose has Teeth in the Mouth of a Beast, a few months back and I have been slowly absorbing the genius of their efforts. This concept album is composed of a collection of songs inspired by people that Matmos admires. It is a brutally unique album that will probably turn many away. The opening track "Roses and Teeth for Ludwig Wittgenstein" is one of the best introductions to the strange world of Matmos. Wittgenstein was an Austrian philosopher, who lived primarily in the 20th century and the song consists of a portion of his text repeated over and over. This disparate collage of sounds includes cows eating roses covered with manure to warblings by Bjork. Click here to listen.
