Monocle

Monocle

.

"Imagine, if you will, the somnambulant bliss of Broadcast mixed up with that distinctive Slint-style bass, the playful bossa of a throwaway Stereolab B-side and, perhaps most strikingly – a great big nod towards the glamorous-yet-underachieving shoegazers Lush" – Vinyl Vulture

Brooklyn's Monocle fuse droning, hypnotic sounds, catchy melodies, and subtle shifts in harmony with thoughtful composition. Monocle's 2006 EP, Lounge Act, combined sugary pop chords, dark lyrics, and heavy sounds that balanced the power and energy of a live band along with glossy electronics. Their debut album Outer Sunset, a combination of dense and progressive cinematic pop, is truly essential listening.
