about

I Monster's third album, released in 2009, sees the band in their usual mood - playful psychedelic electronic new wave pop. A sixteen track affair: from the yearning but not-so-innocent-pop bop of 'A Sucker For Your Sound', through the dark twilight psych-dub of 'She's Giving Me The I', to the end of a lifetime sci-fi psychedelic bounce of 'A Pod Is Waiting'. The album boasts the outfit's obsession with vintage gear, including a multitude of analogue synths, Mellotron, Wurlitzer, Rhodes, Optigan, Hammond, Theremin...
'Dense Swarm' also features Philly on vocals and Mick Somerset on various saxophones and flutes.
Cover art by the band's own Varrod Goblink, which also features in Storm Thorgerson's 'Classic Album Covers' book.
