Lost Map Records are awfy proud of their offspring, Monoganon - and want you to join them in the christening of their new album, F A M I L Y. The album is the first official new release on the label - LAT 00°1 - and is out on October 28th. On Saturday November 9th, we're going to be having a party up at the CCA in Glasgow, to commemorate it's release. Oohyabeautae.
Monoganon are a Glasgow-formed four-piece, led with strength of artistry, willpower and broadband connection from Malmö, Sweden (55°35'N, 13°01'W) by inestimable singer, guitarist and songwriter, Scottish ex-pat John B. McKenna, with dexterous and intuitive support from drummer Colin Kearney, guitarist Andrew Cowan and bassist Susan Bear.
F A M I L Y is the band's second album, and their first with Lost Map. Written between Scotland and Sweden, and recorded by Winning Sperm Party'sDuncan Young in five intensive days at Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA), F A M I L Y is definitively uncategorisable. A time signature shifting head-spin of a record full of thrillingly unpredictable forays into dreamy acoustic wonderment, Pavement-worthy off-kilter riffs, and fuzzed-out post-rock catharsis.
Support for the night will come courtesy of Eugene Tombs, plus another act to be announced. Early bird tickets are £6, and are available from the Lost Map webshop.
