MONKEY POWER TRIO, THE: Almost Clean: 7” EP

The eighth release from a “band” that is apparently comprised of a group of friends who get together for one afternoon every year to record a bunch of songs, then release the crème de la crème from the session. This year’s results are at times giddy, at times moody, at times more arty than is good for ‘em, and interesting overall in a late-night college radio sorta way. Limited edition, clear vinyl, handmade covers and opaque packaging. Not bad overall, although I probably won’t listen to this more than twice.
