Monomyth – Exo
Suburban – 2016
Rock, Kraut, Space, Psych, Stoner
The Monomyth guys have arrived at their destination in a galaxy far far way. And are already featured on Number 6 of the Doom Chart of this month. Who’s to say they won’t make it to Numero Uno in the next edition in a few weeks? Exo is the completion of a three staged journey towards that far far away goal. On the self-titled debut and follow up Further they explored the universe of great sounds, amazing rhythms and hypnotizing atmospheres without losing sight of the fact that those trips needs to explode on occasion. Everything you loved from krautrock, space rock, experimental adventure and tidbits of stoner were there. Rougher and harder on the debut and subdued on the follow-up. And, Exo is without a doubt the bigger, better, serener and wilder one of the three. There is more room for everything, which gives the album that superb edge. Reaching their peak and stating Exo is the last stop of this adventure, we need to pray to all we hold dear that the boys have seen some weird glimmer of green light on the horizon. And that they will aim the Monomyth spaceship towards that new mystery after they are completely done with Exo. Cause we all need more of this! More of this amazing spacey goodness!
