Monophonics - In Your Brain (2LP)


Back in stock! The new record from San Francisco based band Monophonics entitled "In Your Brain" sits on the fuzzy psych side of soul and funk. Paying homage to innovators such as Sly Stone, Norman Whitfield and Funkedelic's George Clinton, the 6 piece outfit displays their ability to put a moody stamp on each composition.

The title track "In Your Brain" sounds like something straight off of Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain", riding on the funk box and Bohlman's snare snaps is a blaring guitar line that brings back thoughts of Eddie Hazel. In the tradition of 60's soul label Brunswick comes the heart wenchers "Deception" and "They Don't Understand."
