Old Monk

Tries to mix samples of rock, punk, and pop genres together, creating a musical adventure that ranges from a ska-ish sound to a garage band feel. This album often reminds me of They Might be Giants, but not their good stuff. It’s a fun and often upbeat album that blends the genres, sometimes together, sometimes just within itself.
