Paris Monster: Live from Relix Studio (livestream)
May 12 @ 6:00 pm
The technical explanation of NYC’s Paris Monster is thus: They are the darkly funky, elaborately weird, triumphantly transportive brainchild of Dion and Kraly. The pair are also the entirety of the band’s on-stage personnel, which has to be seen to be believed. Josh simultaneously sings unstoppably pure, mammoth-powered soul, while playing super phat drums and deftly precise keyboard bass grooves. Meanwhile, Geoff plugs a Fender bass guitar into a modular synth, creating limitless soundscapes, angular counter melodies and sonic imagery.
But the musical, human and even spiritual explanation of Paris Monster is something to be pondered. The only problem with doing so, is that your head will be bobbing all explanations loose onto the dance floor. This Halloween, the duo will perform all over Colorado in support of their latest full-length Lamplight.
The ominous murk of a bass riff opens Lamplight, sludging underneath bashing, slow-funk drums and the whine of feedback on “Malcom Heart.” The sounds frame a deeply soulful, scratchy tenor, like an avante garde Leon Bridges wailing prophecies from a parallel dimension.
