(hennemusic) Monster Magnet are streaming their new album, "Last Patrol", in advance of its release this coming Tuesday, October 15. The band 's first album since 2010's "Mastermind" is produced by Phil Caivano and frontman Dave Wyndorf.
"Last Patrol is a return to our roots in terms of vibe and recording style," explains Wyndorf. "It's full-on psychedelic space-rock with a 60's garage feel, recorded almost exclusively with vintage guitars, amps and effects in our hometown of Red Bank, NJ."
"The songs are a kind of Space-Noir, tales of cosmic revenge, peaking libidos, alienation and epic strangeness," he continues. "It's a weird trip through the back alleys of a dark, retro-future, which not by coincidence very much resembles my own life. (laughs)
"The lyrics aren't fantasy really, rather a recounting of my musings on, observations of and general emotional reaction to my life and environment during a 1 week writing period in February of 2013. But I tend to use the vernacular and imagery of science fiction and surrealism to express myself and that's where these lyrics get trippy. There's also our cover version of Donovan's "Three Kingfishers" which I thought fit the mood of the album." Check out the album stream here.
