MONITORS: Self-titled: 7”

Aug 22, 2006

Remember those old Hanna Barbera cartoons, where the same backgrounds are repeated over and over again in a loop when a Flinstone was running somewhere? Musically, that’s what’s happening here: repetitive and tinkling new wave with an organ so delicate it almost sounds like soap bubbles popping. With two ex-Kill-a-Watts, I was hoping for something with much more teeth, pubes, and fire.
