Monkey King is not going to open for Dirty Projectors anytime soon, though it does number that band's drummer.

Ongakubaka surfaced with a mind-scraper release by Monkey King, a duo consisting of Dirty Projector's Will Glass along with Philippe Lambert of the similarly electronic-bomb blasted Goa.

This tape, the band's first official release, features long, scattered jams that recall the Kieran Hebden/Steve Reid releases as much as its self-proclaimed affinity with “Ash Ra Tempel playing an Atari 2600 in an animal spirit possession ceremony.” Fasten your helmet for pentatonic meditations, full-body meltdowns, and a few beats you can shake a foot at.
