Monophonics - In Your Brain

Summer Soul Symmetry

Today was a suggestion of summer with the warmth and sun - sounds enough, but May's grey length has cast a long shadow of doubt - but other good shadows have been thrown by this energising light of hope for at least one more week of the same to remind us we don't live at one of the Poles, and Monophonics, who hail from the San Francisco Bay Area, cast their own sunny sense of something special, this time the psychedelic and sweet soul/funk of the seventies so that listening to their latest release In Your Brain does just that: gets inside the head and mixes sounds of old soul and summers gone to provide a template for tomorrow. There's A Riot Going On they sing and things are hotting up finally.
