Spotlight Artist June 1 2009 - Monopot

Monopot are one of those bands that should have gotten a lot more attention when they were around. It's easy to understand why when you realize that they sound very similar to other post-rock acts like Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky. Although they share a similarity to these bands their record Optipess from 2002 stands out as one of the best of its kind. It's pure atmosphere and crispy guitars droning along, lulling the listener into a state of bliss. Try it, you won't be dissapointed.

NB! Every track on the record begins with the prefix "spor" which simply means "track" in Norwegian.
