We last heard from Monomyth in 2014, when they shared a bizarre video for “Patsy” from their album Saturnalia Regalia! The Halifax indie rockers are back this fall with a new LP called Happy Pop Family, and today they share a promising track from the project. “Puppet Creek” is a lovely little folk-rock song that shimmers like a psychedelic new wave mirage. It’s like the Band entered a time travel portal and ended up in the middle of the Paisley Underground. Here’s Monomyth member Seamus Dalton with some context:
“Paging Mr. Marbles to Puppet Creek! There’s a Crack in the Pulpit! Paging Mr. Marbles to Puppet Creek! There’s a Crack in the Pulpit!”
Thinking about being a kid is weird. Music and kissing were way different and those ways are probably lost forever to you and I now. I swear to god Mr. Marbles comes to me twice a year. He faces away from me and takes my hand and we both walk backwards into hell.
With that in mind, listen below.
