The third entry in the Rok Lok Singles Club cassette series is from Monogamy, the brainchild of one D. Alfred Lyons. I first came across Monogamy when the two of us started trading emails back and forth about music and such. I came to stocking Monogamy's full length cd-r/zine "Posture Smiles Upon You" in my distro and I was awestruck with the wonderful hodge podge, cut and paste style of the music found on the album. Shifting from lo-fi field recording type stuff, folk and bedroom pop, Monogamy covers a lot of ground. There is the ever present conflict of toe tappin' catchy, oddity and grating somehow all happening at once. It is music that forces you to be involved in the process, making a decision whether you are a part of it or not rather than it just being wandering off in the background. And that is what I love about Monogamy's music is it brings music back to feeling rewarded as a listener, as you are participating in the process. Monogamy sounds like all of your favorite Shrimper, Sonic Enemy and Unread Records releases all in one. For fans of Refrigerator, Paste, Palace, and Lou Barlow's Sentrdidoh. Limited to 50 copies with hand stamped labels and full color, numbered j cards.
