New Cool Collective

24-11 New Cool Collective releases Electric Monkey Sessions 2

The wait is over. No more pre-saves, pre-orders and no more teasers or snippets. As of today New Cool Collective’s new album ‘Electric Monkey Sessions 2’ is available in full. All ten tracks on colored vinyl (in a beautiful gatefold sleeve), on cd, as download and stream. So pick your favorite shop or service and enjoy the music.

The album is a follow up to Electric Monkey Sessions which was released in 2014. Just like it’s predecessor the new album is named after the Electric Monkey studio in Amsterdam. Here the band recorded the full album together with engineer Kasper Frenkel with the goal to pursue an even rawer and more analogue sound than the first Electric Monkey Sessions. The result is a diverse album with with an intriguing psychedelic cumbia vibe which ranges from the bubbling up-tempo Latin-jazz of Max to the beautiful ballad Villechaize and much more.

 

Next week the band will be kicking off an extensive tour through the Netherlands which starts with a release show in Paradiso Noord (November 29) and continues all the way into the first months of 2018. See the full schedule below for more details and links.
