The March installment of the Joyful Noise 2013 Flexi Disc Series featured an exclusive track from Monotonix!
From the city of Tel Aviv, Israel, Monotonix are the most insane motherfuckers in their geographic region. Which is saying a lot. Known for their chaotic, beer-saturating live shows (which typically end with the band being forcibly removed from the venue) Monotonix released their first two albums on the fantastic Drag City label. With their contribution to the Joyful Noise 2013 Flexi Disc series, Monotonix have thrown us a curveball. Their contribution “Now” is a 6-minute balls-to-the-wall experiment. A far cry from their almost grunge-leaning studio albums, “Now” is a mostly-instrumental, free-jazz-ish piece – showing that they are as opposed to musical convention as they are to dive bar security.
Devotees will notice that the March 2012 installment of our Flexi Disc series was a track by Jad Fair, also called “Now”. Though this is a complete and utter coincidence, we are thinking of taking a cue from the universe and making it a recurring theme...
"Now" is limited to just 1000 copies, and was only available as part of our 2013 Flexi-Disc Series.
