MONO announce new live album ‘Beyond The Past’ / Listen to ‘Meet Us Where the Night Ends’


For two decades, MONO have defined and re-fined a kind of orchestral rock that is as emotional as it is experimental. Their 10 studio albums over those 20 years have established MONO as what Pitchfork described as “one of the most distinctive bands of the 21st Century.” Meanwhile, their live concerts are typically more subdued in instrumentation – and more supercharged in volume and voltage.

STEARICA CELEBRATE 20TH ANNIVERSARY WITH NEW 20 MINUTE AND 20 SECONDS LONG TRACK ‘20YRS’

This year marks the 20th anniversary since Turin-based instrumental trio STEARICA began to play together. Yes, they met as kids in school! Their many years of friendship and musical collaboration have allowed them to develop their almost-telepathic tightness onstage, in which they seem to play as one three-headed beast.

 

 

To mark the occasion, they have undertaken a single-track musical odyssey of 20 minutes and 20 seconds duration. It encapsulates the passion of 20 years of playing together and their shared love of combining primordial rhythms and infectious melodies with avant-garde stylings.
