Nice Monster has completed work on its new CD, “The Great, Long Rest.” Compared to the two previous albums, “Good Times + Sharp Knives” and the self-titled EP, the arrangements are somewhat tighter, the drumset grew some new toms, there are more lyrics per song, the tempos are a little faster, there is less transfat, the songs each get higher miles per gallon, and we have a great cast of Sacramento musicians pitching in! “The Calvinists” features backing vocals by Justin Farren. If you know what is good for you, see http://justinfarren.com/. Backing vocals on “The Great Long Rest” provided by Jay Shaner and for more info, please see http://jayshaner.com/. He also has a great project called 50-Watt Heavy. They have a Facebook page. Violin on “Sports Report” played by Damian Sol, and you, too, can have him on your record – please see http://damiansol.com/. The CD is set for release in June on Grayscale Records. Our CD release show is scheduled for June 12th at the Fox and Goose with special guest Odame Sucks!
