Check Out Matmos' and Dan Deacon's Daytrotter Session

More often than not, Illinois-based culture hub Daytrotter places its focus directly on indie-friendly pop artists and the like, but in this refreshing change of pace, the Baltimore-via-San Francisco outfit Matmos (pictured above), along with fellow Baltimorean Dan Deacon, recorded an impromptu session in Asheville, North Carolina, while in town for the Moog Fest. The lengthy piece is split into two sections of improvisational music, one of which is more airy and piano-driven while the other is more percussive and rhythmic. This isn't what we'd call "typical" Matmos fare, but rather something better resembling what jazz might sound like if horns and guitars had never been invented. You can stream or download the recordings (after signing up for the service) over on the Daytrotter website, here. (via Altered Zones)
