Monster Magnet – a better dystopia cd/2lp
Weer eens iets nieuws van Monster Magnet. Een coverplaat deze keer maar wel grotendeels enorm obscuur werk.
‘”Take a trip inside the mind of psychedelic rock legend Dave Wyndorf with MONSTER MAGNET’s A Better Dystopia – a delightfully psychotic selection of proto-metal and late-era psych songs that fit the band like a glove! With wonderfully obscure song choices and excellent sequencing, the mighty Magnet pay homage to some of their favorite songs of all time. While the album marks a new frontier for MONSTER MAGNET as their first covers record, this is not your typical set of standards released to pass time. Magnet offers their stunning, whirlwind take on the often-overlooked hard rock classic “”Learning To Die”” (Dust) and a masterful version the Stooges meets Goth epic, “”Solid Gold Hell”” (The Scientists). The album closes with a nuclear cover of Morgen’s “Welcome To The Void”, inviting you to restart the ride again and again. Take a sonic journey to another time and space and experience what has made MONSTER MAGNET tick since day one with A Better Dystopia!”
