2008 Top-20 Countdown - No.8

Mono In VCF - Mono In VCF

I could not have written it better myself, so here's Matt Shea's post from The Cool Hunter about Mono In VCF: "Trying to describe Tacoma’s Mono In VCF makes you feel like a tongue-tied fool attempting to convey a transcendental experience. This is music quite unlike anything you’ve heard before, perhaps best imagined as a young Suede camping on a rooftop, watching storms clouds with Phil Spector. It’s on Masha, lifted from Mono In VCF’s self-titled LP, that we witness the band’s finest hour. It’s a song born of the cold sea, with guitars that shudder like crumbling icebergs and synths that brush a transpacific wind across the nape of your neck. Bang in the middle of the mix sits Kim Miller’s voice, an exercise in beguilement that could seduce a fleet of sailors into the abyss. Stupefying, soul-tickling stuff". Indeed. Now go in their website and order their CD NOW!!! It is only $10!!! And Escape City Scrapers is one of the best songs of the year! Go go go!!! I like the t-shirts too - and what a great cover (the font is superbly 70's meets 00's).
