3 - MONO (JAP) - NOWHERE NOW HERE - (CD) 
PELAGIC


The conflict and correlation between dark and light is a universal theme with a historically rich history. Musically, perhaps no band in the 21st Century has mined that relationship more consistently or effectively than Japans MONO.Across 10 albums in 20 years, MONO have convincingly reflected the quietest and most chaotic parts of life through their music. Their everexpanding instrumental palette - which began in earnest in 1999 with the traditional guitar-bassdrumsrock band setup - has evolved to include as many as 30 orchestral instruments. Now, on Nowhere Now Here, the band add electronics to their repertoire - perhaps inspired byguitarist/composer Takaakira Taka Gotos recent collaboration with John McEntire, the beguiling Behind the Shadow Drops. Nowhere Now Here also sees MONOs first-ever lineup change, adding new drummer Dahm Majuri Cipolla (The Phantom Family Halo) to the core trio of Goto, Tamaki, and Yoda. Tamaki also makes her vocal debut here, singing into the shadows of vintage Nico on the poetically hazy "Breathe". The unlikely career of MONO has taken them to virtually every corner of the planet, several times over. Those corners have all left indelible marks on their music, as it drills deeper towards the sound of feeling not quite human and all too human - often at the same time. As British Musical Magazine NME once stated, "this is music for the Gods".

5 - MONO (JAP) - RAYS OF DARKNESS - (CD) 
PELAGIC


MONO evolved into an orchestral rock band and performed in prestigious venues in New York, London and Tokyo, with renowned orchestras by their sides. Following a wave of creative peaks, MONO regrouped and planned where to go next. This departure comes in the form of two albums; The Last Dawn and Rays of Darkness. Together but different. Side by side but opposites.The twin albums were recorded concurrently, yet conceptually and creatively, they are worlds apart. They are two sides to a story, but they remain hand in hand. Themes that have permeated MONOs previous output are revisited through the conjoined albums: hope and hopelessness, love and loss, immense joy and unspeakable pain. Whilst one hand soothes, the other wreaks havoc. The "light" side of this chapter in the MONO story is The Last Dawn. The pared down tracks take inspiration from influences as diverse as minimalist film scores and vintage shoegaze. Noticeably more stripped back than their previous releases, the album clocks in at under forty minutes; the succinct offering proffers the hope, love and joy in a neatly wrapped package. In direct contrast, Rays of Darkness is an altogether more ominous and brooding beast. Notable for the absence of MONOs near-trademark orchestral instruments, this album leans heavily on the aggression of blistering riffs, jarring angles, and a doom-layered undertone. Another dynamic is added by the involvement of post-hardcore pioneer, Tetsu Fukagawa of Envy; Tetsu provides vocals, for the first time ever on a MONO recording. The crescendos here seem all the more threatening, and the diminuendos feel that much more bleak.
