Mono

I just discovered a Japanese band called Mono. I’ve been on something of an ambient/electronica kick recently, and just ran across them thanks to Salon’s audio section (which I ignored for a long time, even though I’ve been a subscriber for a long time). They’re pretty wild: the reviews I’ve read of them compare them to Sonic Youth (which I saw once in concert and was totally unimpressed by, though probably because I saw them in a club with terrible sound, and was on one of those blind dates that you just hope you survive– it was like Martin Scorcese’s After Hours… minus the humor or suicide) and the Scottish group Mogwai (which I’d never heard of).

  1. I expect they employ viral marketing.
