Album Review

Monos – “Age and Transformation + Aged and Transformed” – [Infraction]

cinder   11/25/2012   A Library, CD

A reissue of a 2004 release, now with a 4th 40-minute track to round it out. Monos are Colin Potter and Darren Tate. Rolling, sliding, pinging, minimalistic, wind drones, guitar scraping. Like most releases like this, the further into the track you go, the more complex it is. Each builds somewhat slowly, never overpowering or quite reaching a peak, but great complexity in its simplicity. The second track on the first CD has bird field recordings. All others feel organic and somewhat mechanical in their sounds. Various instruments hide their identification. For the very patient listener, would be excellent for mixing, and layering, or let them reach for the sounds on its own.
