Mong Tong to release new album ‘Orientations 向位’ on WV Sorcerer Productions 巫唱片

Mong Tong 夢東 are the Taiwan 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. They also 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. They released a new track called ‘Nakasi Pop’ a while ago too.

Now they will release a new album on the mystical label WV Sorcerer Productions.This new album is called ‘Orientations 向位’ and will be released September 23 and it is again a different approach on their cosmic music style, this time it is a more ambient and fragile. The first two tracks are out and show a soft, trancelike and careful sound made by the brothers. I strongly suggest you buy the vinyl, these are always made with careful love by the label. Check out the first two tracks now.

And absolutely gorgeous album so you can guess how happy I am to find a new EP on their bandcamp.

The EP is called ‘Corps of Light’ and has a slower, more meditative atmosphere. Again highly hypnotic but this time more calming. Again a beauty that shows this trio is capable of making a wide range of musical styles.  Tune in, buy the casette and let the magic overflow you.

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.

Mong Tong 夢東 on Guruguru Brain

Guruguru Brain is a gorgeous label, If you don’t know it you need to check it out fast. The bands that are on this label are always exceptional, original and give me pure joy. So here is another new band for me, One that I have never heard of.
Mong Tong 夢東 is a band from Taipei and will release their new album “Mystery 秘神”  June 19 on Guru Guru Brain. We get the first two tracks wich are called ‘Chakra’ and ‘Jou Tau’. This is absolutely amazing sampled based psych. The base line is far beyond, alien sounds and voice samples make these first two tracks soooo frikkin good, I can not wait to hear more from this band. Absolutely amazing stuff! pre-order the album fast because this will be gone fast.

Les Rallizes Dénudés: Mystery, Noise and Psychedelic Rock

The psychedelic/noise/folk formation Les Rallizes Dénudés (Hadaka no Rallizes) are a Japanese band formed by frontman Takashi Mizutani in the late ’60s. You can find a lot of info/rumours and speculations about Les Rallizes Dénudés on the Internet. Most of their music are bootlegs, live recordings and other low quality stuff. They have never officialy released an album. Some say Mizutani was dissatisfied with the studio sound, thus never recording something official. Listen to some youtube music from Les Rallizes Dénudés.
