Old Monk

Brooklyn trio Old Monk start their month residency at Cake Shop tonight (2/1), playing the first four Wednesdays in February. Tonight's show is with Black Forrest and the Dearloves.

Old Monk just released their debut album, Birds of Belize, on Eenie Meanie Records a couple weeks ago. It's choc-a-bloc with big riffs and sticky choruses, with a little of Pavement's brainy cool, and surprisingly complex structure (there's a whiff of prog) given that most of the songs are well short of the three minute mark. Some serious chops too. There's three tracks from the album available to download at the top of this post. "Warm Moustache" is particularly catchy.

Click through for streamable versions of the MP3s, plus Birds of Belize cover art.

That pic of them annoys me a lot. Does it have any meaning or was it just them being "artistic"?
