Mono in Stereo premiere new music video, “Different Kind of Man”

Mono in Stereo is a band on the up and up. They released their second album on Rum Bar RecordsCan’t Stop The Bleeding, in June of this year, along with an earlier released video for “The Conversation” which Dying Scene premiered here. Since then they’ve been tapped for punk rock glory by having a song of theirs featured in the upcoming Joselito Seldera feature film, Screw City, which follows a young riot girl going through the struggle of post-high school band mate disssociation blues. Personally, as a guy who’s gone through five (official) drummers and a handful of bassists in just as many years, it’s a story I know all to well.

Today Mono in Stereo is releasing a new music video for the single “Different Kind of Man” , which tells another familiar tale of young love in the California desert. “The thought was Midwest punk in Southern California,” says Seldera, who also directed the video. “The clothes, the style, the vibe. Dusty and gritty. No beaches, no skaters or surfers or cool neighborhoods or anything like that. So we came up with a list of cool, sort of weird places well outside of L.A. and for two days we drove around the desert and shot at those places.”

The video tails two coed heroes on the fringes with subtle reminders through their caustic reality that God is love, and highlights the early sparks of infatuation and shifting persuasions… I think our grand-folks called that courting or something. The song is catchy and smile-inducing – think Bruce Springsteen meets Naked Raygun. It provides a great blend of classic bar room rock and roll with our beloved punk rock about opening up with one another and weeding out loneliness.”Let me pick you up at home tonight because we’re headed where the eagles dare. Left alone up to our own devices, there’s a lot of thing’s that we can share.” There’s a right way and there’s a wrong way, kiddos ,but more often than not we find ourselves somewhere in-between.

Seldera listed two videos as major influences: “I re-watched The Jesus and Mary Chain’s ‘Sometimes Always’ video over and over, a thousand times, and even tried to emulate a few shots from that one. That and Camera Obscura’s ‘French Navy.’ I wanted to add a bit of a narrative in the way that video does.”

DS Exclusive: Mono in Stereo premiere new music video, “The Conversation” (ffo: Menzingers, OWTH)

“We can hang out here, but we can’t hang out too long because this conversation is going nowhere.” “The Conversation” is the newest single from Mono in Stereo, a punk rock outfit out of Rockford, IL playing heartland rock and roll, “melding the seemingly disparate influences of Bruce Springsteen, ’80s hardcore, alt country, and classic mid-western punk… sincere songwriting, no-nonsense tunes, and choruses that practically explode out of your earbuds. While in many ways similar to more recent bands like the Menzingers, Off With Their Heads and The Hold Steady, Mono In Stereo owes just as much to the mid-western legacy of Husker Du, The Replacements, Naked Raygun and Pegboy.”

Can’t Stop the Bleeding is the title of their newest EP being released on Rum Bar Records June 21 and promises “great songs with lyrics that speak to the human experience. Pop open a cold one, drop the needle, have a seat, and let these songs sink in. It’s going to be a fine summer. Everything is going to be alright. We just know it will.”  You can pre-order those tracks on vinyl/CD/digital here.

Dying Scene is proud to host the exclusive music video premiere of “The Conversation” today, below. It’s a mono-chromatic rendition played on a semi-hollow body guitar and crosses bridges and empty rooms . It’s streaming straight from the Midwest so crack open a cold one and drop the needle, young scenesters. If you’ve ever had the “sneaking suspicion that you’re screaming at a wall” then this one’s for you.

Introducing Punk N Roll Act: The Peawees (FFO Elvis Presley + Punk)

I was a total music nerd when I was a kid. I listened to absolutely nothing except golden oldies and Weird Al until I was in high school. I stumbled onto punk rock when I was 15 and considered myself musically “cool” but now that I think about it, starting a punk music blog is pretty much the pinnacle of fanboy geekdom – so, still a music nerd it seems. But I digress. I was telling you about golden oldies. I never lost my love for the rock ‘n roll of the 60s, which is why Italy’s The Peawees are striking such a chord with me. These guys channel the greats like Elvis, Chuck Berry or Buddy Holly but do it with decidedly punk rock rock flare. They’re not “new”, they’ve been kicking around the punk scene since 1995 but they’re new to Dying Scene and on September 14th they’re dropping their new album “Moving Target” via Rum Bar Records. Put your dancing shoes on and give a couple of the tunes a listen here.
