Monnik came in to the limelight with 2015’s Vondeling. The album was an almost solipsist experiment into guitar drone music. Over the years, Monnik has never ceased to experiment, and purify his sound. His progress was staggering, and after a few successful tape releases, the time is here to formally present the next step into this Monnik’s progress. The (guitar) drone is still at the base of his art, but he has tremendously expanded on his sound, diving deep into a psychedelic take on ambient and drone music. Walk the path of the Monnik. The journey towards the innerself has never sounded this intriguing and captivating.
Bedevaart will be released through Consouling Sounds on October 27th and is available for pre-order through here. Listen to the full album exclusively below.
