when the world ends, what will you be listening to?
this album, "under the pipal tree" is by the japanese instrumental band, mono (you can buy it here). my favorite track on the album is "the kidnapper bell". when the world is about to end, this song should be playing over the loudspeakers. everywhere. it sounds like impending doom. about seven and a half minutes in, this laser beam of a guitar comes in and rips a hole in your eardrum, it's beautiful.
download (for a short time): mono > the kidnapper bell
go see them play live if you have the chance, it's well worth it. bring earplugs. they're releasing a new album this spring, and a tour should follow.
