Monogold is a Brooklyn based band who's "Strange Wave" style seems to flow seamlessly thru the familiar and unfamiliar at all times. This couldn't be more apparent than on the 6th release of the "Babyfood" LP, released Sept 29th via Chill Mega Chill records. Consistently morphing sounds and styles each release is something surprising and signature. Always staying conceptual in the music, artwork and videos they do, their art continues to evolve with each new venture.
Cookies is a band from New York City specializing in popular music.
The Point is Michael O'Neill (MEN, Ladybug Transistor) and Sammy Tunis (The Lisps).
O'Neill and Tunis, a couple, left New York City in the summer of 2013 and temporarily moved to Maine, where a collection of ethereal songs emerged from the intimacy and isolation of city exile. They spent September on Mt. Desert Island, where they stayed in a friend's home and recorded a demo in a barn over-looking the ocean.
The first of a series of three EPs, "Somes Sound" (named for a body of water on Mt. Desert Island) is, in Tunis' words, "break-up songs we probably should have written years ago." With a nostalgic and haunting 80s feel, these songs speak to a forgotten need for closure and a reckoning with the past, and they set the stage for the next two EPs, which deal with the present and future.
