Monotonix - Body Language EP + Cowboy EP
I'm pretty much head over balls excited for the last weekend of March. A weekend that will involve Acid Mothers Temple, Howlin Rain, and Monotonix on three consecutive nights. After coming across ridiculously consistant live reviews of Monotonix, particularly at SXSW, I decided to check the band out. After checking out their myspace, their pictures alone completely sold me. A hairy as fuck sweaty naked lead singer, trash cans on heads, and flaming cymbals (the literal kind, not the homosexual kind). At that point their sound was irrelevant to me, but, alas, they're pretty badass to the ears as well. So, I managed to track down every mp3 I could find of theirs, which included a self-titled release from last year, which includes the six tracks from their upcoming EP, Body Language, to be released via Drag City on April 22nd, and a random "Cowboy EP" I came across on Soulseek that I can't find any information on anywhere else. I can already tell that their recorded material will not do their live show justice, but the riff heavy Tel Aviv, Israel rockers know how to make some good tunes. A must hear.
