Matmos: The Consuming Flame (Video Excerpts)
Last August, object-core duo Matmos released a 3-hour mammoth of a triple-LP titled The Consuming Flame: Open Exercises in Group Form. Being that each installation of this release clocks in about an hour, Matmos released a playlist of excerpts with accompanying video to select and consume.
The Consuming Flame: Open Exercises in Group Form is out now via Thrill Jockey.
The group's 2019 release, Plastic Anniversary, was reviewed for No Ripcord.

Following the release of their new album The Consuming Flame: Open Exercises in Group Form, and a recent performance Bandcamp live showcasing new video pieces, electronic duo Matmos have shared five new excerpt music videos. Included in the set is a video for excerpt "Friendsylum" directed by Ed Apodaca, as well as excerpts "Circle of Swords" (featuring clipping.), "Blessed Order Of", "Boomchicka", and "Maybeism", the latter four of which were created by the band. Each of the five videos takes on Matmos' method of collage from different angles, blending striking imagery with the mundane, disturbing with the delightful.
