[MP3] new Monogold: “Ivory Teeth Golden Tusk”

A few days ago I mentioned a trifecta of March releases that have become an obsession of late: Generational’s Actor-Caster, Starfucker’s Reptilians, and A Lull’s Confetti. I failed to mention or adequately recognize that this threesome is in the company of equally brilliant hidden gems you should all know about, particularly when it comes to Monogold and their upcoming debut LP The Softest Glow.

Justin Timberlake wanted to bring sexy back, Judd Apatow wants to bring penis back, The Strokes want to bring their heyday back, while I make it a mission to bring fidelity back. Imagine how many fewer fuzzy, similar-sounding “buzzbands” we’d have to deal with if they were forced to prove themselves in an arena of crystal clear sound and honest musicianship. Monogold would surely prevail under such circumstances. “Ivory Teeth Golden Tusk” sharpens your ear drums as piercing piano clash vibrantly with tribal drumming and malleable vocal harmonies. It gets you moving, thinking, feeling in all sorts of ways that the dull haze of chillwave and lo-fi bedroom pop just doesn’t. There’s a time for both genres and styles, but Spring certainly belongs to music like Monogold’s (and A Lull’s, Starfucker’s, Generational’s, and Caveman’s… get on that shit ASAP).
