I saw KLUB Monsta for the first time at the second Secret Stages. They were playing in a tent in a parking lot across the street from Metro. It was getting dark, and there weren’t any lights for them, as you can see:
It was hard to see, but nobody cared.They were far and away the best thing I heard at Secret Stages that year. I remember turning to Whitney and
saying, “Who are these guys?”. She didn’t know either.
I introduced myself after their set and they were some of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. They told me about Separate But Sequel, which I devoured. They did an awesome video in the back of Bottletree, and then they got quiet.
10/24 they woke up. The new album, CANVAS with DJ Wally Sparks is available now on Bandcamp and pretty much all I’ve been listening to when I’m in front of my computer.
I’m in no way an impartial, critical observer here. I’m not even going to try to review this thing. I love it. Have a listen.
