Thumpermonkey (aka Thumpermonkey Lives!) is a South London based band, making experiments with what you could call a ‘traditional’ rock sound. Big, radio-friendly vocals get warped into unsettling, uncompromising tunes that refuse to go where they should. Lyrics too are nice and dense and stand up on their own – a rarity these days, when all the effort usually goes into the composing.
Thumpermonkey have just about to release a new album, ‘Sleep Furiously’, which you can hear via their web site if you’re quick (free streaming until Oct 31st). http://thumpermonkey.com/category/news/
Previous albums, including Other Rock Show fave ‘We Bake Our Bread Beneath Her Holy Fire’, are available from their Bandcamp: http://thumpermonkey.bandcamp.com/
