Priority Male's preparing a reissue of Ennui, but before that comes out Moniker is dropping another new Ono album, Diegesis; it doesn't come out till next Tuesday, but the Reader is premiering the entire record. Cave band leader Cooper Crain produced the album, which has some brooding, noisy art-funk that can put you in a trance. I'm particularly taken with the primitive industrial percussion and bulbous bass line on "BLACK POWER.MOVE" and the slow, heavy take on Jimi Hendrix's "Burning of the Midnight Lamp," which ends with a rush of noise that sounds like a gospel choir emerging from a mud pit. Stream Diegesis below and preorder it at Moniker's website or Bandcamp page.
