Mono - "You Are There"
(Temporary Residence 2006, CD/2-LP)
From Aural Innovations #33 (March 2006)
Mono is back and again taking their brand of ethereal floating, spacey dynamic music up to another level. While they have not created anything that new or challenging, they are reaching new peaks in this sort of art form and create a wall of sound at times that just overpowers the listener, while bringing the music down to just the most simple and quiet moments like a light snow on a sunny day. The band recorded this CD with Steve Albini (Big Black fame) and he did a great job of capturing the bands intensity as you would hear in their live setting.
