Instrumental Post-Rock Greats MONO Celebrate 20 Years (Show Saturday)
MONO has been playing their brand of sweeping instrumental post-rock for 20 years now. To celebrate, the band has not only booked a full US tour (with a few special orchestral shows) but is releasing a live mini-album from Electrical Audio where they’ve made all their records with Steve Albini since 2004. “Halo” originally comes from their 2nd album (2002’s One Step More And You Die which was not originally recorded with Albini) and for those not familiar with the band provides a great idea of what the band sounds like live. Gentle instrumentals give way to massive crescendos and epic powerful sonic walls.
MONO performs at the Turf Club tomorrow night (11/16) with monumental doom duo Bell Witch. More details here.
