Single Serving: Monster Rally – Return to Paradise

Monster Rally - Return to Paradise

It’s no exaggeration when I say that California-by-way-of-Ohio producer Monster Rally (a.k.a. Ted Feighan ) lays out some of the chillest vibes I’ve ever heard. For example, “Orchid” is the first single from his forthcoming third full-length Return to Paradise. It’s effortlessly cool and debonaire, like the smooth rolling soundtrack to some James Bond-style international espionage. As for the rest of the album, the label’s bio sells it: “His wanderlust samplings travel from Peru to Japan, Detroit to Maui, and Ghana to Barcelona expressing the pageantry and ceremony of destinations only the truly intrepid have tasted before.” Sign me up!

Return to Paradise is limited to 250 copies on ocean blue vinyl and 750 copies on classic black vinyl. Get a copy from Gold Robot Records.

    Last year(?) you posted a Monster Rally/RUMTUM track that I really liked enough to check out the whole album and I ended up making a ringtone out of one of the songs. This new one sounds like a perfect summer chill out album (but where did summer go?)

    Yeah, that Monster Rally/RUMTUM album is awesome too. It sets such an awesome ambiance.
