After releasing one of our favourite albums in 2014, Chicago’s Monobody are back with an incredible new live session and up-coming split record.

It’s been just over a year since we first heard Monobody – and luckily they’re still as good as ever. Their live version of ‘Curry Courier Career’ blew us away when it was released back in 2014, and their debut self-titled album was one of our favourites from 2015. So, naturally, we were a little bit excited when we heard the 5-piece had another live session up their sleeves.

Now, if you haven’t already heard Monobody before, then you’re in for a treat. This performance of their album closer ‘Country Doctor’ is one of their best yet – and a must listen for fans of instrumental jazz and math rock.

After releasing one of our favourite albums in 2014, Chicago’s Monobody are back with an incredible new live session and up-coming split record.

Now, if you haven’t already heard Monobody before, then you’re in for a treat. This performance of their album closer ‘Country Doctor’ is one of their best yet – and a must listen for fans of instrumental jazz and math rock.

In this session, recorded at Downbeat Studios in November, Monobody show their astounding diversity, with the introduction of a number of auxiliary instruments including vibraphone, harp, trumpet and trombone. It’s a unique and beautiful track which we urge you all to check out as soon as you can. You can watch the session right now above.

Speaking to Monobody, it seems we’ve got even more new music on the way in 2016 too, as the band explain:

“We’ve been working on a couple of tracks for a split with our friends Pyramid Scheme which will be coming out in the near future. We also have an album’s worth of material on the shelf that we hope to begin recording and rehearsing after the split is complete. The expanded “Country Doctor” line-up is a taste of what’s to come.”
