First taste of this EP arrived just yesterday, and it was damn good. From what I’ve heard so far, the rest doesn’t disappoint either.

Some nice beats from the new guy on SWTBRDS, fitting in well with the label’s already established aesthetic. The instrumentals sound good on their own, but I’d love to hear DaVinci hop on some of them too.

A melancholy video for a melancholy track from Mondre’s recent solo. Randomly punctuated by flashes of eery imagery, to make things feel a little off kilter. Directed by Al Jieh & Tim Jieh.

I didn’t realize this until just yesterday, but there is a deluxe edition Mondre’s recent solo album coming soon, which will include a zine/lyric booklet. This booklet has some cool illustrations by Alex Petty (aka Crud Castle), who also did the album’s cover; and photography by Terry Barentsen. Above and below are screenshots of two included drawings which I particularly liked. You can stream the album below as well. More info and scans from the zine are HERE, and pre-order the whole deluxe bundle HERE.
