" Too Loud. " — Hart Fishlein, FADER
Conceived during the summer of 2018, Monolith was an attempt to write from the perspective of Odysseus. It was written in mind to be performed by a double trio—with the band Good Whales contributing performances to the recording. It was tracked and finished at Glenwood Place, probably the first and last song I'll record in a major label studio; I'm glad I sucked the sound I wanted from that place to make the most of the opportunity. Nate and I went crazy trying to build up that wall of sound. I think the recording certainly reflects that.
