When a band doesn't release anything for three years, you hope they're using that time to put together something really juicy, and that's definitely the case for Bay Area psychedelic-soul group Monophonics. On Monophonics' mostly instrumental 2012 album, In Your Brain, they put the "psychedelic" part of their music in the backseat and played up a horns-heavy nothin'-but-soul sound that echoed influences of classic acts like Sly & the Family Stone and The Temptations, as well as contemporary groups like Orgone. But for Monophonics' new album, Sound of Sinning—out April 14—they branched out into a more diverse selection of influences from '60s and '70s psychedelia, including Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Zombies and more. For a taste of the new material, check out Monophonics' killer track "Promises"—save the psych-psych-psychedelic music video for a moment when you're bored at work. Coyote Vision and Sweet Jesus are also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker)
