Galaxius Mons was recorded entirely with only a Moog Rogue synthesizer.
At times reminiscent of a more stripped-down take on Magnetic Fields’ Holiday, Galaxius Mons make a lot of noise on their debut, all while getting lost inside the frigid crypts hiding beneath Montreal.
Good friends and frequent collaborators on each others work, the pair teamed up earlier this year as Galaxius Mons, taking their musical idiosyncrasies and sensibilities and mashing it all together into a delicious snythpop hot mess.
The sounds they discover on this album could be considered the Platonic Ideal of synthesis, with the two skilled songwriters penning memorable singsong melodies over hypnotic drum loops. This meeting absolutely constitutes a supergroup in our books.
