Paul Roland with Mick Crossley - Grimmer Than Grimm

Paul Roland is an interesting case. An eclectic songwriter and performer, that transcends categorization as his music dwells between psychedelia, baroque, pop, folk, gothic, rock… you name it. Far too often inspired by classic literature, horror stories, the occult and paranormal, he does so, not in light “theatrical” way, despite his music having great atmosphere and theatricality. A person who’s explored and written about the paranormal and an author himself, he has a certain authority on the matter.
 

The Mon shares a memorable sonic exploration with “Her” video

The Mon, the new solo project by Urlo - best known as the lead vocalist, bassist, and synth player in heavy trio Ufomammut - has shared a video from the upcoming debut full-length expected this autumn.
 
The video for The Mon's “Her” is the first one of a series titled “Solve et Coagula" - the formula that the alchemists used to effect the transformation from base metal into gold. It could also be described as a process where something is broken down to its elements, a process which produces energy that compels reconstitution in a purer form. The video for “Her" was created by Lu of Malleus Rock Art Lab.

When I first saw the names of this release I instantly thought of “The Stone House” album which was released early in February 2017; this time one musician, the bassist Stavi, is missing and the four have become a trio. As the press release says, “The Stone House” was released first but was actually recorded second during a marathon six-day 2016 series of sessions that will ultimately yield more than the three albums initially planned.
