Album Notes
Uncle Monkey formed in Wellington '95 and have become one of New Zealand's enduring success stories. Their music blends home-grown organic indie-rock, with 3 part harmonies. They've toured New Zealand, Australia, and ventured into Alaska, Bolivia and Nepal to perform. The band's new single 'Julia'...
"will make you sigh and breathe in time with it's waves... it's beautiful. It lets you sink into a misty realm of heady melodies and emotive lyrics..." - Hannah O'Reilly.

'Julia' is the 6th single from the 2nd album which has already spawned 3 succesful radio songs. The success of the 'Open Arms' video (3rd: viewers choice; Juice TV music awards) was sufficient prompt for Rage TV and Triple JJJ to air the song in Australia. 'Open Arms' was also selected for the television feature 'Summer Camp USA'. The follow-up single 'Cracked Up' was also a strong radio single for the band. The Land Transport Safety Authority selected 'Cracked Up' for their learner drivers' CDRom and it was also featured in the Wellington short-film festival.

The 3-piece are well known for their engaging live performances through nationwide touring, which led to recent shows alongside Trinity Roots, OdESSA, Rhombus & Jordan Luck. Loop Recordings selected Uncle Monkey's song 'Brotherly' for their Tsunami Relief 'Sunday Sessions' CD, with proceeds going toward the Surf-Aid International appeal.

Brotherly definetly reaches the level of REM, Coldplay, Muse, etc.
This CD has a little bit less variety then the last one, but it has a special quality which is even above the last one. It feels like they have found their styl. My favorite song is still brotherly (a world class song!) and I like excess baggage allowance and shades of brown a lot, too. The CD is definetly worthwile, even brotherly would be, although if you have to get use to the beginning. It's one of the songs you listen to and which get better with every time you do it! JUST GET IT!

Great Album
This is exactly what I expected from this well oiled pop/rock unit.
The highlight single for me is shades of brown - which IS a fantastic song live.

This is a great album - if you don't believe me then buy it yourself , if you do believe me then you are going to buy it anyway!.

Rock on
