Rock 'n' Roll from Fukui, Japan
The two founding members of Old Monk were separated by thousands of miles when they began writing their first EP. It took years of swapping answering machine recordings and exchanging lo-fi demos over the internet to complete. The successful collaboration finally convinced drummer Ian Burns to leave his native Colorado, joining guitarist Joshua Carrafa in Brooklyn. The two honed down their project into a set of concise pop songs with the raw energy of garage rock and the musical proficiency of classic prog. Deciding they must showcase their new music around Brooklyn and Manhattan, the two enlisted bassist Tsugumi Takashi and dubbed their project Old Monk. Old Monk has recently recorded its debut album, Birds of Belize.
Toranavox is a Brooklyn-based, ultra-dense hard rock band. Formed at the end of 2014, the group is comprised of two musicians: Ken Minami, a Japanese guitarist/vocalist, and Eli Halfi, an Israeli drummer/vocalist. Together, they create time altering, dark, happy hard rock with heavy metal overtones. The lyrics explode in Japanese, Hebrew, and English - a variety that matches the range also achieved with their sound.
