Apparently we missed a cactus concert this past weekend in Chicago. Did you miss it too? Well, you can get the album instead. I feel better already.
New York’s So Percussion has… been working with eccentric Baltimore-based electronic duo Matmos—they played a concert together at the Chicago Cultural Center in October 2006—and that collaboration has finally resulted in an album, Treasure State (Cantaloupe).
(T)hey make instruments of beer cans, cactus, and bits of ceramic, among other things—though their tones are so heavily processed it’s hard to tell.
