World Cafe Next: Monophonics
There is a quote on the website of our World Cafe: Next band this week, Monophonics. It's from Al Bell, the legendary one-time head of Stax Records: "One of the best live soul bands I have ever seen!"
Actually, Al only got it half right. There are many more sides to the Monophonics. They are a psychedelic soul band from the San Francisco Bay Area that draws on many genres from the '60s and '70s, including psychedelic rock.
Their first album, Your Brain, came out in 2012 and they have just released Sound of Sinning. You can download our weekly World Cafe: Next podcast at Soundcloud.com/Worldcafe.
