Album Notes
Monocle is a NYC-based group that fuses droning, hypnotic sounds, catchy melodies, and subtle shifts in harmony with thoughtful composition. Monocle is the brainchild of Rich Bennett, a New York City-based composer and guitarist. Bennett has been part of the NYC music scene for years, and is known for his work with Friendly Bears, a progressive, experimental rock group, for which he composes for and plays. Monocle's 4 song EP, Lounge Act, was released in April 2006 (Pralaya Records) and combines sugary pop chords, dark lyrics, and heavy sounds that balance the power and energy of a live band along with glossy electronics.

Wonderful -- more, please!
Yes, it does remind me of Stereolab & Komeda, but it has its own tone & style -- breezy, joyful, with that vital undercurrent of melancholy that makes the music get under your skin. It's got me waiting eagerly & impatiently for a full-length CD!
