Matmos’ Drew Daniel Gives Away YouTube-Based Album

Drew Daniel is not just half of experimental duo Matmos—he’s also been making postmodern house music as The Soft Pink Truth since 2003. The advent of YouTube in 2005 gave Daniel the creative boost he’d been missing in his studio hours, and he’s just released an album’s-worth of carefully sampled Youtube explorations (and we all know how surreal those can get).

The Soft Pink Truth’s “Why Pay More?” is comprised entirely of web-based audio compositions and other goodies from the dawn of YouTube. No need to pay for more on this one—just head to Bandcamp to stream or download at a pay-what-you-can rate.
