UPDATED: with youtube tracks…see below!
This album perfectly embodies the problem with attempting to write about music: sometimes you hear something new that’s unique and you just say HOLY FUCKING SHIT THAT IS INCREDIBLE, and you can’t really describe it well enough… Here goes anyways:
Sunmonx – Power Salad
Sunmonx is a duo from Australia that includes Opiuo and Austero. Interchill has no doubt found another diamond in the dub-rough. Opiuo is well known especially here on the West Coast for his crunchy glitch-hop tunes that are highly reminiscent of Tipper. Austero is apparently some incredible guitar genius, strictly judging from this record. The bottom line on this album is: a kinetic fusion of dub, reggae, blues, and funk with a slight twinge of dubstep. The first track, Parma Panorama is emblematic of this seemingly nonsensical style-salad; with a horn section, smooth guitar lines, a steady ragga skank, and a sax solo befitting Maceo Parker.
