Beverages + Ghosts

by The Monologue Bombs

Sinner-songwriting that takes you from fuzzy funereal memories to drunken Brooklyn fumblings, from college town fear and loathing to shaky suburban snapshots, from piano to accordion to guitar and back.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
he Monologue Bombs is the solo moniker of Scott Phillips, overactive enricher of Raleigh, North Carolina’s fertile music scene for a dozen years. The Monologue Bombs is his take on sinner-songwriting; 'Beverages + Ghosts' is the first stone thrown.

While Phillips switches from piano to accordion to guitar and back, the focus is always on the verite scene-setting, the drives of the characters, and the ugly/beautiful truths of their stories. Plus a voice that shades it all in with whispers and wails, convictions and surrenderrings.

Trainspotters can pick out flavor crystals (Springsteen, Buckner, Gibbard, Black, Bragg, etc), but The Monologue Bombs is a singular experience. Spare, yet inviting. Smart, yet still starry-eyed. Phillips has also done his rough-n-rocky voice and keys for Goner and Boy Wonder Jinx, and sweet-n-lonesome collaborations with the likes of Caitlin Cary and Des Ark. Beverages + Ghosts is a Superfan Records release.

"Scott Phillips is one of the bravest songwriters I’ve ever heard. He is brave with his voice, brave with metaphors, melody, instrument and form, and seemingly unafraid to reveal just all of himself—every experience and every emotion."
--Caitlin Cary (Tres Chicas, Whiskeytown)
