CD Reviews

Erectus Monotone
Matthew Brown | St. Augustine, FL USA | 09/15/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When I visualize the phrase 'massively under-realized-potential' I think of Erectus Monotone. One of the most talented bands to come out of the early nineties Chapel Hill scene, these rockin' boys (and girl) were but a flash in the pan compared to their cohorts and fellow indie-rock gods Polvo. Close-Up is all that remains of this incredible and tragically short-lived band. The only shortcoming of this album is its length; no matter how many times I hear CLOSE UP, I find myself hoping it won't end as soon as it does. Erectus Monotone was a fantastic and cutting edge indie-rock band, and CLOSE UP definitley deserves a listen."

"These guys are pretty good, very good actually, and this is one of those albums that I had sitting around for ayear or so, and then put it on and discovered it was really great. Very creative and rocking. kinda polvo-like, agitpop, really good."
