Big Scary Monsters – New Spring Releases

BIG SCARY MONSTERS – New Spring Releases!
——————————————————————————————————

Noumenon – Digital EP, Party Mathematics, out May 04
* Now streaming on Punknews.org

Hanalei (Brian Moss – The Ghost / Olehole) – One Big Night full-length out June 01
* Split release with Brick Gun Records

——————————————————————————————————

Big Scary Monsters is pleased to announce that it will be working with Chicago instrumental trio Noumenon, as well as Hanalei, the solo vehicle for San Francisco native and The Ghost / Olehole front man Brian Moss.

On May 4th, The transcontinental label will release the five-song digital EP, Party Mathematics, from the former, while the latter’s newest full-length, One Big Night, will see a June 1st CD / digital release.

Recorded and produced by Mike Lust (Chin Up Chin Up, William Elliott Whitmore, Volta Do Mar) and mastered by Carl Saff (Young Widows, Ghosts and Vodka, Melt Banana), Noumenon’s aptly titled debut EP revels in twisting time signatures, jubilant chord progressions and warm, fuzzy melodies that ultimately keep the proceedings light and fun. In other words … party math, duder!

Punknews.org is currently streaming the EP in its entirety. Go here to listen.

One Big Night is Hanalei’s first proper release in four years and finds Brian Moss exploring more straight-forward, stripped-down avenues. An entirely self-recorded affair, fans of The Ghost and Olehole will still appreciate Moss’s raw, honest approach to songwriting. The full-length will be released in CD and digital formats by Big Scary Monsters and upstart Brick Gun Records.

You can listen to two songs – “Rats” and the title track, “One Big Night” – on Hanalei’s Myspace page.
