MONO – One Step More And You Die / New York Soundtracks
MONO is a Japanese instrumental band, formed in 1999 in Tokyo. The band have cited a variety of experimental, avant-rock and classical music artists as inspirations but stated that their aim is to transcend genre, rejecting the post-rock label which has often been applied to them. Mono’s sound is characterised by the lead and rhythm guitars of Goto and Yoda respectively, both of whom make extensive use of reverb, distortion and delay effects. The band’s live performances are noted for their intensity, both in the playing and in the dynamics. One Step More And You Die is their second album, released in 2002. It was recorded between shows in Japan, with the band again handling production duties. The album was released in Japan in October of that year, it received generally positive reviews, and met a larger audience than their debut album had.
