|Men of North Country This City Limited Vinyl LP
Itís been 3 years since Tel Avivís indie-soul septet MONC released their debut LP ďThe NorthĒ on Acid Jazz Records. But make no mistake, they havenít been resting. In the meantime they have released sold-out singles, an EP, and have toured Europe no less than five times! They visited Germany, France, Italy and the Czech Republic, and were met with excitement all over Europeís Mod and Soul scene.
April of 2016 sees the release of their second studio album, titled ďThis CityĒ, which is dedicated to their home town Ė Tel Aviv. In the album MONC infuse Northern Soul, Post-Punk and Rock'N'Roll influences into heady visions of the cityís buildings, streets, bedrooms, clubs and bars, while remaining dedicated to their brass section extravaganza and the three-minute pop-nugget charm.
The band have a fan in Craig Charles, who liked the album so much heís hand-selecting 3 of his favourite tracks from the album on his BBC Funk & Soul Show and will invite listeners to phone in and vote for the ďsingleĒ, which will then be released digitally by the band. He has also invited the band over from Tel Aviv for a live session in the stationís Manchester studios.
