it's called You Are There, and there's track one up for download by clicking "sound"
It's more of the same*
*This is a good thing
Was gonna post about this. Mp3 that's up is awesome and Yearning, the third track, is fantastic - it was their contribution to the split with Pelican.
is very exciting news.
think they've gone back down the REALLY FUCKING NOISY route. It always suited them better.
have just heard the new album. It sounded pretty much a straightforward follow on from Walking Cloud to me. Some quite lovely soft bits and some heavy(ish) distortion and delay on show during other bits.
I dont think Mono have ever been "REALLY FUCKING NOISY" anyway. Their sound is so limited with the 2 guitarists that they can only make reworkings of their earlier songs.
I'm not knocking it. I love them but they will never really be innovators of a sound as they just continually rip off everyone else.
oh dear. am I reawakening that tired Mono vs every other Post-rock band debate again? I hope not.
but surely you agree;
"You are there....best post-rock track evra!"
I will reserve judgement on that. Any track is going to have to be pretty fucking amazing to push Helicon 1 off the top spot.
