Tomorrow! Monahans and Centro-matic at Off Broadway
Its 2007 debut album, Low Pining, was a moody, atmospheric take on rootsy Americana, an album whose lonely soundscapes painted rust-colored pictures of desolate southwestern highways at dusk. Although this year's Dim the Aurora finds Monahans retaining Pining's sprawling ethereal beauty, the LP also features moments of urgent, driving pop -- a sound that draws as much from I.R.S.-era R.E.M. as it does from the brooding emotion of Nick Cave.Snag a new MP3 from Aurora below.
