I've decided the Muses deserve to be really bitten into, so that's what I'm doing.

Fucking great noise.

The album from 1986 or 2003? I think the 1986 one is officially considered to just be untitled and 2003 is officially considered the self titled one.

I preordered these:


 


Rays of Darkness is the first MONO album in 15 years to feature no orchestral instruments whatsoever. That fact alone is remarkable given the band's reputation for sweeping, dramatic instrumentals that recall Oscar-worthy film scores. Instead, Rays of Darkness more closely resembles a jet engine taking off inside a small, crowded auditorium. It is MONO's blackest album ever, a collection of scorched riffs, doom rhythms, and an unexpected contribution from post-hardcore pioneer Tetsu Fukagawa of Envy. The album ends with the smoldering wreckage of distorted guitars and ominous drones playing out a eulogy to the days when MONO shot blinding rays of light through seemingly endless darkness.

 


The Last Dawn is the first of these two companion albums, and is the "lighter" of the two, thematically and melodically. It contains undoubtedly some of MONO's strongest songs ever, drawing on an array of influences from minimalist film score to vintage shoegaze. It is MONO at their absolute purest, executing an uncanny, unspoken dialogue with each other without the dozens of stringed instruments that have been so prominent throughout their catalog. The songs are also noticeably more efficient – there hasn't been a MONO full-length record to fit on a single slab of vinyl since 2003's One Step More And You Die – and the album benefits immeasurably from this streamlined approach. MONO have always been masters of telling compelling stories without words. But now they've proven they can do it without frills, too.

I'm talking about the 2003 release actually. I don't think I really developed a serious interest in the band until I heard that record, which is a bit embarrassing.

But like I said about the Lips: I was listening to them for years before Hear it Is and Soft Bulletin started sounding like they were by same band. But once everything clicked, it was like I realized I realized there was something I was missing about them, and that I didn't just "like" them.. I fucking loved them.

I recently relocated S/t it while I was clearing out a storage unit, and when I started listening to it and I remembered how perfect that album sounded to me when I first bought it. Now I'm on kind of a Muses kick. But I'm sure s/t is not a very frequent choice for fave. album. But fuck it, it's a tremendous album. Puts Tktle TK to shame, and that's saying something.

That's cool. I'm late to the TM party as well, so any album that works for you works for me

Recent treats:

• The Acid's Liminal is pretty goddamn impressive. It's one of the year's best all around records, for motherfucking certain.

• Homeboy Sandman is like the answer to the question: "what if Chance the Rapper" was an absurdist rather than a traditionalist who put out like 2 LP's a year and and was fast becoming one of Stones Throw's most prolific and inventive emcees? Hallways may be his best album to date.

• Merchandise is a big old hype right now. Okay music w/ pretty crap vocals.

• RUSTIE's Green Language- this mofo helped produce Danny Brown's Old. His record is a fucking ecstasy tasting party for your brain. Danny Brown appears

... And more... Took a pic but it didn't upload properly, so I'll get around to the rest later.

Holy mother fucking hell that is some beautiful cover art! It's just... Jesus... Totally mesmerizing! I've never listened to this group (yeah, I know. I should be in prison) but how can anything with such breathtaking visual components not be musically brilliant?

I think I'll just dive right in.

you can check their bandcamp for all their older albums. All of them are good, but I recommend to start with Hymn to the Immortal Wind or Holy Ground: NYC Live with the Wordless Music Orchestra
This is my most anticipated release of the year (apart from Silver Mt Zion), so really looking forward to hearing it.

You're talking about Fuck Off, Get Free..., right? There isn't another ASMZ release this year is there (aside from the EP I haven't heard yet)

I think I've always confused this band with their UK counterpart (that other "Mono" who sucks of course.

yup, that one
There's some tracks from Mono's new albums on their soundcloud
One of them sounds an awful lot like an instrumental U2/Coldplay though, but the other one is delicious
