Monocle, from nyc/usa, are a perfect balance of dreampop and hip/lounge Music (where Stereolab are not far), whose Secret Handshake and Car Ride well define the borderlines, the first with mellow languid female vocals running through the fast waves of delayed guitars, the latter with a more sugary easy-listening cut, sometimes twee/bossanova, - a perfect hit, where drums line are exciting and Sunny Kim's voice is even breezier and pure harmony. I'd say Their melodies are subtle and fresh, - final instrumental song Hawaii is like a missing track from Stereolab+The High Lamas' record. - Audio @ myspace/monoclemusic
I Monocle, da nyc/usa, sono un perfetto equilibro di dreampop e Musica hip/lounge (dove gli Stereolab non sono lontani), di cui Secret Handshake e Car Ride ben ne definiscono i confini, la prima con le morbide vocals della cantante catturate nelle veloci ondate di delay della chitarra, la seconda con un taglio più zuccheroso easy-listening, a volte twee/bossanova, - una perfetta hit, dove le linee di batteria sono eccitanti e la stessa voce di Sunny Kim è ancora più ariosa, pura armonia. Direi che le Loro melodie sono sottili e fresche, - e la finale strumentale Hawaii è come una traccia mancante dalla collaborazione Stereolab+The High Lamas. - Audio @ myspace/monoclemusic
