The Mon - Doppelleben (CD)
Catalog number: CAT021
THE MON is the solo project by Urlo, best known as the lead vocalist, bass and synth player in heavy trio Ufomammut. THE MON builds layers of brooding sounds which sometimes unfurl at a glacial pace and other times lurch with rhythmic propulsion, each piece distinct, densely packed, and all-consuming in their evocative atmospheres.
‘Doppelleben’ is a German word meaning ‘double life.’ The entire album circles around this concept; the idea we become different people over time, we change, sometimes we evolve, sometimes we involve, but the flowing of time is what we have left when we face ourselves.
