Mong Tong 夢東 are a trio from Taiwan with the Brothers Hom Yu and Jiun Chi who also play in Prairie WWWW (落差草原 WWWW) and Dope Purple. And now they released their new album ‘Mystery’ on Guruguru Brain.
This band may very wel be one of my favourite discoveries of 2020. There is something absolutely magical in their sound, you can just feel the dreamlike soundscapes, the vintage samples in combination with the krautrock and psych. Combine this with the traditional Taiwanese music and the original approach of this band you get something truly hypnotic and magical. catchy basslines, futuristic synth sounds, vintage samples, they combine it all and the whole sounds sooo good together.
Easily one of the most refreshing releases of the year so far. This should still the hunger of every music fan, does not matter what kind of music they like.
Mong Tong makes magic with sounds.
