Monster Rally


Over the years, the universe of Monster Rally—hypnotic, sample-based exotica and vibrant collage work—has continued to expand and intrigue. Ted’s highly imaginative and productive spirit makes him an ideal collaborator (he was the first artist we thought to dream with). And as such, he’s an excellent choice to lead us all into the second year of Singles Club. The quarterly record club and music journal is releasing its 5th issue, today, with an expansive and beautifully presented digital feature alongside a new single available to subscribers on clear 7″ vinyl.

The A-side above, a vignette from multiple vantages, opens in stride, guided by spiraling arpeggios and real-time narration (“you’re slipping…), before resting briefly inside a beatless sequence. Things then pick up again, in a slightly different groove and place altogether—perhaps a ballroom under the stars—disorienting, pleasant… quintessential Monster Rally.

The B-side, an audio interview, gives a thoughtful glimpse into creative process and beyond. Explore the issue here.

The most recent episode of S&S Radio was arranged by Jean, a French artist (now based in Montreal) who designs sound as Triste Marker, Johnny Ripper, Adam Wrong, and Boy With a Red Cap. Across his various projects, there’s a sense of studious wonder, as if driven by a curiosity that never rests. Especially (in the context of the influences/favorites mixed here) his Triste Marker work, which uses field recordings and organic noise to edit “memory into music.” This is confirmed by the thoughtful effort put forth in Jean’s track by track commentary below.
