Hear Matom's Auditory Tribute to Germany's Famed Hansa Recording Studios

The duo channel David Bowie and Iggy Pop in their ambient-ish soundscapes.

Okay, so some of y'all who were weaned on instant gratification might have to sit on your hands for a couple minutes, because the beat in Matom's spacey "Hansa" doesn't kick in for a hot second. The track, off of their dense upcoming album Love Mistakes, is a direct tribute to the sounds emanating from the Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, the exalted recording space that birthed David Bowie's finest works, along with albums by Iggy Pop, Brian Eno, Depeche Mode, The Pixies, and even everybody's favorite iTunes hijackers, U2


In fact, this whole album is loosely based around material by Bowie and Pop. "Hansa" in particular is the kind of track you want to wake up to as you float about in some futuristic haze. It's deep and spooky, and builds slowly at a whopping 8:48.

The album comes out on September 22nd on Planet E. Find Matom on Soundcloud.
