Monnone Alone Shares Stay Foggy Video

A little over a year ago, Mark Monnone and his Monnone Alone project released the sparkling Stay Foggy LP. But, seeing as it’s never a bad time to share a nice tune, Mark and company have crafted a video for the record’s title track, and so here I am. The video captures the sort of astral spirit of Mark, as he walks about in the song’s opening minutes, all before he opts to ride on a cloud down a darkened street as he fuzzes up his guitar playing. It’s a great tune, with shimmering crystalline notes and Mark’s soft vocal tones, so perhaps you missed it the first time around, so go HERE to correct that!

Monnone Alone Shares Pepper Jar Single

We’re just a month or so away from the new Monnone Alone LP, so you’ve got to dip your toes into the warm water in Mark’s pool of pop. This new single quickly slides into this huge ringing chords, meant for arena rock status, but brought back to Earth by the softened jangling style of Monnone’s guitar play. While I love that big sound, bordering on crunchy power pop, I think I’m in love with the vocals on this tune; they kind of hang out there on a laundry wire of pop, blowing in the wind, occasionally gusting with these delighting notes that rise and fall so effortlessly. And if that wasn’t enough, how about the song’s fade out, just budding with infectious pop bravado. Stay Foggy will be released on September 3rd via all the usual pop purveyors: Lost and Lonesome/Meritorio/Emo Response/Royal Mint.

Monnone Alone Drop Time Is On the Run Video

Opening with Hamish Kilgour (the Clean) in your new video is bound to get some eyes turning your way, and well, if not, then at least the new Monnone Alone song is a ray of light in these rainy Austin days. I love the uplifting jangle of the guitar tones, almost hinting at sort of surf-worthy vibes, though the bright spot is the way Mark always plays with monosyllabic lines; the do-do-dos add an extra melodic texture that matches the electronic pulse of the tune. Plus, there’s a lot of open space in this tune for the guitars to kind of run and play, frolic about in the mix if you will. This is the second single on Stay Foggy, the new LP out in September via Lost and Lonesome/RoyalMint/EmoResponse/Meritorio.

Monnone Alone Shares Feel It Disappearing Video

This is our site and we do what we want! Sure, I introduced you to the great new “Feel It Disappearing” single from Monnone Alone a few weeks ago, but I wanted to remind you of its pull by sharing this brand new video version of the tune! It’s also in my Top 10 songs of 2021 right now; I think I have it at the No. 4 spot. You get some great images of Mark traversing the wild, socially distanced of course, not to mention some additional flare added in by director Simon Fazio. Still claiming that hook at the 2:17 mark might be one of my favorite 10 second pop nuggets of the year, period. Don’t you agree? Whatever. This song rips. This song appears on the forthcoming Stay Foggy LP (and on a 7″ too) available via Lost and Lonesome and Emotional Response.
