Sold Out

It's been a long journey for Northern-Spy artist Colin Langenus and Tom Hohmann, like floating stoned on the back of the turtle that carries the world. Or primal scream therapy. That trip culminates with R.I.P., the groupメs final release, and the first of Brooklynメs newest indie label. A swan song of a group at the top of its form, flowing with ease through psychedelia, stoner rock, prog, Native American mythos, and even political disintegration. R.I.P. was mixed by sludge-riff wunderkind, Max Hodes and features local NYC lumininaries such as Jeremy Danneman (Parade of One) and Matt Mottel (Talibam!). Graced by Tom Hohmann's original cover art and pressed both on high quality vinyl and CD digipack, it will be a small treasure to carry forward for both the band's fans and those just discovering this fascinating group as they embark on their next journeys.

"It's quite simple, really. Like Ted Williams, who hit a home run on his very last at-bat, Langenus and Hohmann want to go out on top. Banal? Sure. But have they succeeded? Without question." - Justin Farrar, Village Voice

"The USA is a Monster's message is one of the fall of society, but these two are far from pessimists, and with drums, a guitar, and a synthesizer, Hohmann and Langenus preach their scripture one twisted hook at a time." - Adam Strohm, Fake Jazz

"mystical texture but astronomical scale." - Roque Strew, Pitchfork CD
