Mantra Monsta
Street: 04.20
Mantra Monsta  = Wolf Eyes + Man Man
This release starts off strong with a song that sort of sounds like a noise interpretation of Devendra Banhart’s “Fall,” but it quickly degrades into an unintelligible mess. For the most part, it sounds like something one would record with friends after getting drunk and playing instruments you are completely unfamiliar with. When the songs were somewhat coherent, they sound interesting (“We are Friends,” “God Vs. Star Warses”) and the organ sounds and scratchy synth beat make “Haunted” the highlight of the release.
