MonoNeon Drops Brand Psychedelic New Album, “A Place Called Fantasy” [Stream]

first_imgMonoNeon, the eccentric musician who held the honor of being the legendary Prince’s last bassist, has just release a brand-new eleven-track album titled A Place Called Fantasy today. Known for his synthesis of funk grooves with the psychedelic, MonoNeon, in recent months, has increasingly built a name for himself as a solo artist. The bassist has gained notoriety both within the jam scene and far beyond for his expert musicianship, as well as for his whimsical and hilarious cover videos, near-constant production of new music, and larger-than-life musical persona.Watch A Drummer And Bassist MonoNeon Cover A Charlie Rant From ‘It’s Always Sunny’A Place Called Fantasy is fearless in its direction. Moving between the bizarre, introspective, minimal, raunchy, and over-the-top with ease, A Place Called Fantasy falls in line with the rest of MonoNeon’s catalog, which is similarly boundless. Despite the avant-garde nature of the album, which can sometimes be a boon to studio efforts and inherently off-putting to some listeners, this latest work is held together by his innate talents with a guitar and bass and ability to imbue his fantastic and imaginative renderings with a cross-genre sonic appeal. You can listen to A Place Called Fantasy below, which also features AWFM (A Weirdo From Memphis), Taylor Morse, Nina Gnewd, Lance Lucas, and Anthony Knox.<a href=”http://dywanethomasjr.bandcamp.com/album/a-place-called-fantasy”>A Place Called Fantasy by MonoNeon</a>last_img read more
