MML Update: Monzano

Digging ourselves out of a snowstorm seems to have left us exhausted, chilled and exactly one day behind in reporting a decidedly warm new release from a band we featured many moons ago. Our original mention of Oslo, Norway four piece Monzano took place over three years ago, in November 2006, with a mostly distracted ramble and preview for the track Poster Boy which would eventually belong to their full-length debut High Horses & One Trick Ponies. Since this 2007 release (2008 through Japanese label Friend Of Mine Records), musicians Sjur Lyseid (of The Little Hands Of Asphalt), Eivind Bøe, Magnus Rauan and Eivind Almhjell have taken the time to craft another 10 songs that serve as a perfect evolution for this guitar-pop sound we had almost forgotten all about. The brand new album, titled By This Time Last Year Everything Will Seem Younger, was just made available yesterday 2/15 through Oslo based label Spoon Train Audio (Spoon Train MySpace) and we have a listening experience to share. Such a lovely pop song that might just give you a good indication of what to expect from the new album.

MP3: Cold Waters
