Mono Memory / Era
Whenever I see that there is a new Mono Memory release I immediately embrace my inner Kip from Napoleon Dynamite and let out a long, "Yessssssssssssssss!" Why? Because he is an artists that I will purchase ten times out of ten. I don't even need to hear a sample or a teaser single. Mono Memory is synonymous with quality in my book and he has yet to betray my trust.
Era is a three track EP that explores the more laid back side of synthwave. Honestly, I love the fact that I can escape into Mono Memory's music. I've mentioned it before, but there's just something about his music that hits a chord inside me...I dunno, it sounds cheesy, but I just connect with it. There's no other way to say it, really. Each new Mono Memory release is like finding a long lost friend and reconnecting with them. There's a familiarity there, but it's a new experience as well. It's an uncanny experience and I thoroughly enjoy it each and every time. (Also, the guitar work in Silhouettes??? Whoa!)
Be sure to check out the Mono Memory discography when you click on the "Available Now" link below (because you NEED to head over to Bandcamp and snag this gem). Each EP is a different kind of experience and deserve your attention. He's also got some pretty great cover tracks to listen to, and who doesn't enjoy those?!?
