Album Review: @Little_mono – Sailing Songs #MusicIsEverything

Posted on the 15 March 2016 by Music Vstheworld @musicvstheworld

Little Mono have been on the periphery of my vision for quite some time (I reviewed one of their singles back in 2014). They released their debut album “Sailing Songs” a few weeks ago, and on this occasion I’m definitely late to the game as this is the first chance I’ve had to listen. I’m metaphorically kicking myself right now, as it’s one of the strongest debuts I’ve heard in a while! Should’ve removed those blinkers!

My first and lasting impression is that this is an idiosyncratic take on psychedelic rock. Careful listeners will pick up on the subtle nuances within the music: the bass-heavy start to “Vivid”, off the wall vocal inflections in “Submarine Song”, perfectly timed undulation of the drums throughout the entirety of the album, Nirvana-esque guitars and attitude paired together in “I Can See the Wilderness” … and that’s just on the first listen!

My favorite track from this offering is “Propeller”. It has a certain coherence in both vocals and harmonies, and its sentimental weight appeals to me, as do the echoes that have been dispersed throughout the song. I can imagine this going down a storm when played live, and I hope to experience that for myself, and soon!

You can listen to the album in its entirety on bandcamp, but I implore you to part with your hard-earned cash for it, as it is very much worth the spend! Go for it, and while you’re at it give them a follow on twitter – they won’t mind one bit!

Incidentally, there’s a sneaky peak of what is to come on their Soundcloud page… get on it!
