ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"One of my favorite records of the year...dreamy futuristic folk pop...experimental and space-agey, but still rooted in traditional pop songwriting" - Angry Asian Man

"Pure joy...[a] crisp, happy little album" - Beach Sloth

Whereas his first two critically acclaimed releases, 2004's "Falls Off the Curb, Chump Style" and 2006's "Inanomie Op. 221" were melancholic intersections of chaotic beats and serrated guitars, the sound of "Secession in Astropolis" is energetic and bright, at the same time featuring Monteverde's characteristically subdued and introspective vocals.

With beats that range from the nu-Kraftwerk "Moving On" and the tin pan drum'n'bass of "Cranes" to the dense electro of "Alternator" and the trance/2-step of "The Less I Know."

All Songs Written and Produced by Jon Monteverde (BMI). Louise Rider - violin on 'Moving On.' Recorded, Mixed, and Mastered at the Northwest Passage. Art Direction & Design by Truth Study Center. Copyright 2011 XYZR_KX. All Rights Reserved. ACT15.
