Matmos at the Columbus Theatre on March 18

Sonic Youth named an album Washing Machine; Shakira’s English-language breakthrough was called Laundry Service. Vivien Goldman’s 1981 single “Laundrette” dealt with a woman in a laundromat watching her socks jostling against the socks of her oppressive boyfriend. But until Matmos came along, nobody recorded an entire album using only a washing machine as an instrument. Ultimate Care II, the quirky duo’s seventh and most recent album is a single, 38-minute long track designed to last as long as one wash cycle. Hopefully their live show will feature other noises; there’s nothing I loathe more than the sound of water sloshing around.
