Monophonics - In Your Brain - out on Ubiquity Records



Monophonics In Your Brain
Monophonics - In Your Brain
(CD/2xLP/Digital) Ubiquity Records UR299, 2012-05-15

Monophonics are a San Francisco soul/funk band we've been following quite some time. We played their afrofunk track Ageless feat. Karl Denson from their 2010 album Into The Infrasounds (check here), we've selected for the upcoming third volume of the series their epic afro/funk/jam thing Baobab Tree from their 2007 album Playin & Simple, and since we received this fan-tas-tic third album to be released on Ubiquity Records mid-may, we've also played their soul burner There's A Riot Going On in last month's Bag of Goodies selection and kept a few other marvels on the side for some upcoming selections… Their cover of Bang Bang will surely fit a Molesting Laura mix soon, for example… The Monophonics sound is deeply rooted in 70s Funk & Soul, but with a lot of fuzzy psychedelics and bits of 60s garage rock, nods to afrofunk and blaxploitation, rather close to the best productions from Orgone or Daptone's studios, and it's quite understandable that the band left their self-releasing politics to join a worldwide label such as Ubiquity! This one won't leave the Paris DJs stereo for weeks… and vinyl is recommended, as always.
