Mono – Walking Clouds and Deep Red Sky, Flag Fluttered and the Sun Shined


I’m not a Mono expert and this is the only album i have been exposed to, but damn is this thing beautiful. For a long time iv’e held off from listneing to any Mono material, and i don’t know why. I was hesitant to delve into the Japanese Post-rock four piece because i thought they wouldn’t really move me in anyway. I was wrong, i’ll admit it right here.

The music itself is achingly beautiful – it takes it’s time, but doesn’t meander around for too long. I find automatic comparisons to Mogwai in the louder tracks – however they differ in that the use of strings invokes such vivid imagery during the album that makes it intensly mystifying. This album is a post-rock enthusiasts dream, especially of the GY!BE ilk – but there is plenty to be enjoyed by any music fan.
