Power Pop Goodness from Missing Monuments
While they may have dropped the “King Louie” aspect from their name, Missing Monuments is still very much the project of Louie Bankston; he’s got the pedigree of power-pop genius, but I can appreciate the name alteration. The group has a self-titled album coming out in the fall via my favorite lil’ label, Dirtnap Records, and our first taste has a bit of a heavier punch than some of the previous works we’ve gotten from Louie and the boys. The riffs begin just as usual, but as the song progresses there’s a bent that wears a bit more of a metal edge. Should be an interesting listen regardless of changing names and altered sounds.
