Atruly ambitious high-brow experiment, Matmos’s fifth album, The Rose Has Teeth in the Mouth of a Beast, is remarkable for the respect that the avant-garde electronica duo, Drew Daniel and Martin C. Schmidt, pay to the idea that recorded music can sustain the same degree of academic scrutiny as serious literature. A collection of 10 ostensible “sound portraits” (complemented by 10 specially commissioned visual portraits from artists including Daniel Clowes and Jason Mecier), the album pays a peculiar sort of homage to 10 gay and lesbian figures of historical and pop-cultural importance, each of whom Daniel and Schmidt claim was somehow an influence on their own work.
