Monika shares “Babyboy” from new album, playing CMJ shows, including one with Beverly (dates)
by Bill Pearis
Greek artist Monika releases her new album, Secret in the Dark, next Friday (10/2). As mentioned, it was produced by Homer Steinweiss of The Dap-Kings & Menahan Street Band, features a lot of the Daptone players. It's a great sounding record, as you might expect from that talent pool, though don't expect classic soul. The album runs the sonic gammut from '70s style disco to modern pop with some really nice production touches. For example, "Babyboy" is a funky, midtempo groover leavened by a great string arrangement. You can stream that below.
10/15 @ The Living Room (details TBA)
10/16 @ Berlin - (8:10 PM, more details TBA)
10/17 @ Cameo Gallery - CMJ (10:40 PM) with Beverly, Lena Fayre. Prettiots, Von Sell, T0W3RS, DJ Alex Winston (tickets)
