Bay Area heavy-Krautrock-psych band Mondo Drag announce their residency throughout August at Los Angeles' popular live venue The Echo. The band will be joined on two shows by RidingEasy Records labelmates Slow Season, as well as new signees Jesus Sons. Please see all dates below.
Mondo Drag's recently released album, The Occultation of Light has been hailed as one of the Top 10 Metal Albums of 2016 by Consequence of Sound HERE. Metal Hammer rates it 4/5 stars, calling it a "mind-opening, progressive psych sojourn." The Occultation of Light is available to stream and share via Soundcloud and YouTube.
Most of The Occultation of Light was recorded live, tracked and mixed on analog tape by Phil Manley (Trans Am, The Fucking Champs) at El Studio in San Francisco. Mondo Drag had just come off the road after a month out with labelmates Electric Citizen and Slow Season, and their stage-honed, hard-won chemistry bleeds into every second of the record. Songs are warm, psychedelic and grooving, but have a poise born out of classic prog as well. And as much as their new Bay Area home is a factor, that just wouldn't be possible without the road time.
The Occultation of Light is available on LP, CD and download via RidingEasy Records as of February 26th, 2016.
