What more is there to say? Except I can assure you, you’ve most definitely never heard music like this before. A sure fire attention grabber that stands apart from the crowd, in its own dimension; in its own space and time.
So let me introduce to you, ‘Queen’ MonicaHotts…
Born in Guadalajara, MX and moved to the United States (Michigan) in 1980-81, Carla Early AKA ‘MonicaHotts’ is a disciple of Avant Guarde electronica. It’s quite obvious as you listen to her material that it’s definitely not to be pigeon holed into a contemporary music box. There is no contrived formula. This is emotion. This is Monica Hotts as she truly is, walking the path of the brave. She is unique. She is a Maverick.
‘The kids are Aghast’ is a laid-back track smothered in melancholy through its glitchy arrangements. Synths sounds and syncopated bleeps are the common denominator throughout her work. With a tasty element of Post Punk philosophy in her music too which can be heard to educated ears. Minimal to the point of the bare bones of music, it strangely grabs your attention with its simplicity and lack of ego. The tracks are a combination of ‘tech step’ ‘house sounds’ along with blues, blue grass, big band etc.
