A year ago Monomyth surprised the New Art Rock, Kraut Rock and Psychedelic scene with their debut. "Further" is now the second album of the Dutch band. And Monomyth continue with him exactly where they left off with the first album. No reproach, because the four tracks (at 45 minutes playing time) are made outstanding. The large-area New Artrock structures are also a central component on "Further". Now Monomyth also doesn't shy away from jazz rock rhythms (in "Ark-M"). Almost sensational how in "Spheres" the brash fingerpicking on two guitars mixes to something much bigger, only to be topped by spacy sounds. The compact "Collision" grooves without mercy, placing friendly synth sounds next to a hard Hammond organ. The 17-minute "6EQUJ5" is a daring trip that begins friendly - almost like Spacerock or Krautrock light - and ends in rugged sound explosions and hardcore rhythms. "Further" is as big as the debut.
