Jawn Sandstedt I love that this is a true album. I could put this on and listen to each song one at a time without feeling the need to skip a song because it is "bad", I wish more artist would do this. Favorite track: Find My Way Back Home.

Philipp Rudloff This album is going to be way up there in my top 2015 albums. Excellent funky soul on any of the eleven tracks; not a single one I do not like. The album is a very cohesive one with a variety of interesting instrumentation on it. Seeing them live could be even better. Favorite track: Falling Apart.

john greenwood If you missed Monophonic's in your Brain, you need to go back and buy that one first. This is first rate top shelf seriously funky music. They bring the love on every track. Get it on vinyl, all of their music is excellent on vinyl, well produced and mastered.
P.S.--Just watched these guys live in SLC last night, HOLY SHIT what a show!!! Must see seriously funky! Favorite track: Promises.

about

“One of the best live soul bands I have ever seen!”
– Al Bell (Record producer, songwriter, executive, and co-owner of legendary Stax Records)

Raised amid the rich musical culture and history of the San Francisco Bay Area, Monophonics proudly carry the torch through the generations into today’s musical landscape. Holding on to tradition, but by no means purists of any kind, they play their own brand of music known as “Psychedelic Soul.”

The 2012 release of Monophonics last album In Your Brain saw the band pulling influences from such acts as early Funkadelic, Sly and The Family Stone and the The Temptation's Norman Whitfield produced records. With the new album, Sound of Sinning (April 14, 2015 on Transistor Sound Records), the band has grown in all areas of record making and felt a need to explore other important in- fluences. While the group has come to cherish these inspirations, With Sound of Sinning they started venturing beyond, to the groups that were inspiring those soul acts to embrace the psychedelic sound of the 60's and 70's. Bands such as The Zombies, The Beatles, Beach Boys and Pink Floyd. Even with the experimentation of new musical territory, they display the sound that people know and love about Monophonics. Touching on Northern soul, doo-wop, rock and roll, Psych pop, and cinematic music, Monophonics show off their diversity while remaining true to their roots. Overall it's heartfelt music and old school vibes, without losing sight of the present. This is is music steeped in that timeless feeling when people could write and produce songs that you could listen to over and over again. Sound of Sinning was produced by Kelly Finnigan & Ian McDonald and recorded on an old Tascam eight-track 1/4” tape machine at Transistor Sound Studios in San Rafael, CA.

Monophonics is Austin Bohlman (Drums), Myles O’Mahony (Bass/Background Vocals), Ian McDonald (Guitar/Background Vocals), Ryan Scott (Trumpet/Background Vocals/Percussion) & Kelly Finnigan (Keys/Lead Vocals) along with a rotating 2nd horn usually filled by Nadav Nirenberg (Trombone) from Ikebe Shakedown and Breakdown Brass.
