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. They released their album ‘Mystery’ on Guruguru Brain a while ago and it became one of my favourite albums of the year 2020 and you will find them high on my end of the year list as well. They create magical, dreamlike soundscapes with kraut and psych influences. The vintage vibe combines with catchy basslines, samples and traditional Taiwanese music. A litte bit later they released ‘Corps of Light’ wich is a more meditive album.
Now they have released ‘Music from Taiwan Mystery II’ wich is an OST for their artwork book about Taiwan’s cultural mystic attractions, including special places, Taiwan’s Believe It Or Not, unusual buildings and phallic worships.
