"As a young person I frequently heard tales that high-end stereo shoppes used Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon as a demonstration disc, in order to fully document the prowess of their impossibly-expensive wares. I rarely frequented any of these establishments but always took these stories on faith. I’m no audio guru, but it seems to me that someone attempting to do the same thing in 2019 could do a whole lot worse than adopting USA/Mexico’s long-awaited 2nd album, Matamoros for similar purposes. The trio’s first album 2017’s Laredo might’ve been a worthy candidate for a test-spin in the Bang and Olufsen showroom, but the successor is the sort of record that really makes if you’re the sort of person who can appreciate the BACKES MÜLLER BM 100 loudspeaker (list price $500,000.00 USD). Once you’re comfortably settled in, you’ll find that the all-star team of guitarist CRAIG CLOUSE (SHIT & SHINE) drummer KING COFFEY (BUTTHOLE SURFERS) and NATE CROSS (MARRIAGE, WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH) have done everything possible to help you expand your sonic palette—some might say they’ve even done too much! Either way, these guys are as unselfish as they are loud. Or perhaps they’re as selfish as they’re quiet—I do hope you’ll agree their motives are less important than the results, and in this instance, those results are nothing less than a staggering sensory overload.
