Four years ago this classic album by the Monophonics was released. And they are currently on tour. Though there doesn’t seem to be much of anything of substance written on the band, this review of their latest comes closest to capturing their spirit. Now if you don’t know who the Dap-Kings are (as per quote below) you need to check out this small label that oozes with charm, class and talent (more on them in a later posting).
The Monophonics are sort of a more psychedelic west coast counterpart to the Dap-Kings, masters of all things darkly slinky and soulful.
