Dan Caine Wonderfully atmospheric ambient music. Refreshingly creative compositions. I've enjoyed every release from Mixtaped Monk. Favorite track: Beyond Anxiety.

Wherepostrockdwells Urban Lonesome - doesn't use the standard post rock core-crescendo guide throughout the album. Instead it comes up with interesting tempos and contrasting emotions that put you at the crossroads with every song and that's what makes this album so fresh and intriguing! Favorite track: Futile Festivities.


Mixtaped Monk's debut album, "Urban Lonesome," is a very personal and emotional album. Through sounds, it talks about the different experiences a person has, and what he feels, when he finally comes back home after spending 5 years in various cities following his passion. The album tries to convey how the person feels when he finds out that the city, and the whole atmosphere around it, has changed drastically. He feels like he is stranded in a deserted island; friendless, lonely and anxious.
The album is inspired by Arka's own experiences after he shifted to his hometown recently. Sonically, it borders around Atmospheric, Ambient, Post-Rock and Experimental music.
