Mong Tong - Tao Fire

Formed by brothers Hom Yu and Jiun Chi, Mong Tong are your go-to band if you’re wanting to let some Taiwanese psychedelic good stuff into your life. The pair swirl together a rare and enticing sound by sampling Southeast Asian street sounds – including weddings, funerals and traditional celebrations – and then add hypnotic rhythms, 60s and 70s psych, gamelan music, phin guitar, tabla drums, Taiwan sisomi and more. The results are dreamy and often ecstatic. GM

Released 30 June on Guruguru Brain
