Hymn To The Immortal Wind (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Mono’s album Hymn to the Immortal Wind (their first with a full chamber orchetra) is such a big epic boy of a post-rock album, I can’t quite believe that the big chords have even faded away yet from their original playing. And yet here we are, with a one-decade anniversary reissue. These reissues have been remastered by Bob Weston, and are presented in truly luxurious fashion by Temporary Residence.

Nowhere Now Here

The mighty MONO return to Pelagic Records (The Ocean, God Is An Astronaut) with their tenth LP. Nowhere Now Here holds beauty and terror in perfect balance - see how the dark, Thou-esque numbers like ‘After You Comes The Flood’ are juxtaposed with the ethereally beautiful post-rock of ‘Breathe’. This is another fine record from the seasoned band.

Before The Past - Live From Electrical Audio

Before The Past - Live From Electrical Audio by Japanese post-rock band Mono contains three tracks, rerecorded and mixed by Steve Albini, giving them additional power and prowess. It features Com? And Halo originally on their 2002 album One Step More and You Die and L’America originally on 2001’s Under The Pipal Tree.

Behind The Shadow Drops

This is the debut album from  Takaakira ‘Taka’ Goto of iconic Japanese rock explorers Mono. Here he stretches out into a myriad of styles from ambient to trip hop to industrial minimalism and modern classical  and takes members of Tortoise, Mono and the Sea & Cake along for the ride.   

Requiem For Hell

An album by Japanese post-rock heavyweights MONO, titled Requiem For Hell, was always going to be a crashingly epic experience, and the band don’t disappoint. Strings are prominent within the sound here, coaxing the band’s grand crescendos into yet-more-ecstatic territory. CD / double LP editions on the Pelagic label.

MONO / The Ocean

This split pairs highly respected post-rock young guns The Ocean with highly respected post-rock elders Mono. One track each, both beyond ten minutes (of course), and both suitably tremendous in scale. The Ocean’s track is inspired by Gaspar Noe’s Enter The Void, so ought to be pretty heavy. On the Pelagic label.

The Last Dawn

Stripping their sound back from the grandiose orchestral pomp of their recent albums, Japanese post-rockers Mono return this week with two separate single LPs rather than their usual double. 'The Last Dawn' and 'Rays Of Darkness' explore the opposing themes of light and dark, joy and pain, with 'The Last Dawn' perhaps unsurprisingly being the lighter of the two, taking its cues from shoegaze and minimalist film scores.

Rays of Darkness

Mono return without the orchestra for their latest tag-team of albums, with 'Rays Of Darkness' providing a scorched and blackened companion piece to the more redemptive 'The Last Dawn', with the two being released simultaneously. In contrast to that more uplifting LP, this one provides a devastating wall of crumbling distorto-drones and harsh noise riffing that sees a bit of a return to the urgent intensity of their early releases.

One Step More And You Die / New York Soundtracks

Hundreds of people have asked for a re-press of post rock sludgers Mono's second album 'One More Step and You Die' and here it is. Not only that, it contains the out of print 'New York Soundtracks' album containing remixes by Calla, Loren Connors, Jackie O Motherfecker and more. All remastered with expanded artwork. 

Under The Pipal Tree

This is the debut album by MONO, first released fifteen years ago on John Zorn’s Tzadik label. Turns out these guys were epic right from the start: much of Under The Pipal Tree has a grand sweep and a searing intensity to it. Under The Pipal Tree has never been released on vinyl before, so jump onto this new double LP pressing on Temporary Residence, featuring all-new artwork.
