Monsoon Bassoon

psych-rock w/math elements

I don't really think psychedelic rock is a fair tag for this. Active in the mid to late 90's Monsoon Bassoon flits about in their own universe. Not exactly what I'd call a math rock band but they do exhibit occational time changes. Odd tunings and complex rhythms are more what you run into here. Guitars chug energetically through chorus's getting a tad bit stale after a few songs. In all fairness this is highly influenced by prog-rock of the 70's and more contemporary independent groups of the 90's. Its some good stuff and a nice hidden gem
