Monster Rally "Orchids"
Los Angeles-based lo-fi beatsmith Monster Rally (a.k.a. Ted Feighan) is set to follow up last year's well-received Beyond the Sea LP with his third full-length, Return to Paradise (out on October 29 via Gold Robot). The album is said to "translate the images of a half-century of National Geographic into 17 tracks," and our first taste of this new record comes in the form of "Orchids." The Return to Paradise opener features lush guitar playing and a lackadaisical beat, which forms a serene, nostalgia-soaked whole.
