"Monkey King is Philippe from Goa on voice/electronics and Will Glass from Dirty Projectors & The Octagons on drums. We have been playing together for ever. This our first release and it's called: La Lune Se Cache Derriere La Montagne. It sounds like Ash Ra Tempel playing an Atari 2600 in an animal spirit possession ceremony."
Much of this sounds like a more comfortable version of Mindflayer, and definitely sounds as if it could have been a product of Fort Thunder in the late 90s. The drums float along, continuously changing pace, keeping you slightly above the surface before occasionally dropping you into a rhythm you can actually nod your head to. The electronics/vocals add some atmosphere to help complete the natural patterns, and the results sound like a field recording from some sort of industrial jungle. If you're into the more free-form Boredoms, Ruins, or Lightning Bolt material, you'll like this. This is highly enjoyable stuff for myself, and a perfect example of the kind of music we had in mind when naming this blog.
