Monsters are from West Palm Beach. Their personnel is purported to be: Matt Cutler, Ben Mendelewicz, Ross Whetstone and sometimes Michael Lauden. They play aggressive and melodic instrumental music using some combination of drums, guitars and keyboards. The tune above, and other 5 songs on their latest self-titled release, call to my mind the likes of Cinemechanica, Battles, and Alarma Man.

They've recently dropped the price of their new CD, complete with handmade packaging to a paltry $6. I would encourage you to pick up a copy of this lovingly crafted keepsake.

I'm also lobbying them to come up to Tampa to play a set for us in the WMNF Live Music Studio. So, if you'd like to see that happen, drop them a line and let them know that Grand National Championships wants to be in the Diamond Army.
