  There's A Riot Going On  
  High Off Your Love  
  Just in time for Record Store Day, Monophonics drop a 7in single with an exclusive B-Side not available on the upcoming full-length album. "There's A Riot Going On b/w High Off Your Love" will be pressed in limited quantities with a digital download and packaged in a picture sleeve. "There's A Riot Going On" starts with a snare fill that's reminiscent of Jimi's "Machine Gun" and displays what becomes a consistent theme on each Monophonics track: hard drums, catchy bass lines, dirty horns, organs mixed with vibraphones, fuzz guitar and soulful vocals sitting on a sheet of echo & slap back. On the flip side and only available on this 7in, "High Off Your Love" is an uptempo skull snapper that takes a heavy dose of Norman Whitfield produced Temptations records and blends it with the dark creeping sound of soundtrack minded Isaac Hayes. Driven by a "Pusherman" groove and anchored with layers of bass, electric harpsichord, wurlitzer electric piano, fuzz & wah guitar's and heavy orchestrated horns. Sitting on top of this soundscape is a gritty soul vocal coated in tape echo that preaches about a love that's so good it can make a man gotta have it like a bad habit. "In Your Brain", the full-length album also on Ubiquity Records sits on the fuzzy psych side of soul and funk and pays 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. Touching on everything from cinematic soul, heavy funk, 60's rock and spaghetti western laced with yellow sunshine acid, the album is sure to leave you tuned in and turned on! Monophonics will embark on an extensive tour through the US & Canada so look out for them at a venue near you!
