Brainfeeder Preps LP from Mono/Poly, Streams Lead Single
- Words: James Eaton
A longtime member of Los Angeles' beatmaker community, Mono/Poly will return to Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label with a new album in August. Entitled Golden Skies, few details have been revealed for the forthcoming record, other than its release date, August 25, which has been sharead along with a stream of the LP's lead single "Ra Rise." Built around an unsteady rhythm of chopped and stuttered drum loops, "Ra Rise" is a dramatic affair, one which utilizes floating organ tones and ghostly vocals to create a gloomy atmosphere, occasionally broken by bursts of sparkling arpeggio lines and syncopated layers of tactile percussion.
While we await further details on Mono/Poly's forthcoming 'Golden Skies' full-length to arrive, a full stream of the LA artist's "Ra Rise" production can be heard below.
