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.

Mono's debut album is a confident stab at the sort of post-rock sound pioneered by Mogwai and Godspeed You Black Emperor. Unlike early works by those bands, Mono have no truck with shaky production quality or fuzzy found audio pieces to spice up their instrumental post- rock: they simply play away to their heart's content, and what they come up with is more than good enough to justify their faith in their music to hold its own without resorting to any atmospheric tricks. This album kinda toes the line compared to their best work but it is still worth getting due to all the beauty on display.
