If you missed out on picking up Monster Rally’s Coral album on vinyl, Gold Robot have done a repressing of it that will be released in May. Originally released on January 11, 2011, Coral was the album that helped bring attention to Monster Rally in a major way and with requests for the record, it was decided that another batch be pressed up for those who want it. The first pressing of 250 were all on sea foam green vinyl, but this new pressing of 500 will all be on standard black. Pre-orders are available from Gold Robot’s web store.
Also have a listen to “Color Sky” and/or “Champagne/Holiday”, which are both available as a free download while supplies last.

Monster Rally will release a new album on October 29th called Return To Paradise (Gold Robot) and in honor of its release, he or they (Monster Rally is centered around Ted Feighan, so a show might be just him, or others. I would most likely bet on others showing up, but you never know with this guy) will be doing a small handful of shows in southern California with RUMTUM, including a free show at a record store. Here is where everyone will be, and hopefully you as well:
November 1… Los Angeles, CA (Silverlake Lounge) ©
November 2… Echo Park, CA (Origami Vinyl In-Store) (free show)
November 3… San Diego, CA (Kava Lounge) ®
© w/ Dr. Kananga, Esbe
® w/ Zochi, Mysterycave, Sasquatch, DJ Adamnt
A second single has been released from Return To Paradise called “Palm Village”, which you can download for free while supplies last.
You pay pre-order Return To Paradise from Gold Robot Records.
“Orchids” is the latest single from Monster Rally, and it doubles as a song from the band’s forthcoming album Return To Paradise (Gold Robot). As you listen to the song below (available as a free download while supplies last), Return To Paradise will be released on vinyl in two color variations: 750 on standard black, the remaining 250 on ocean blue, packaged in a printed inner sleeve, which is packaged in a gatefold cover. The idea behind the cover design is interesting in itself:
The artwork of Return to Paradise is greatly inspired by the LP jackets of classic Exotica albums: Martin Denny’s Quiet Village, Les Baxter’s Jungle Jazz, and Arthur Lyman’s Bwana to name just a few. Over fifty different varietals of flowers and plants from around the world decorate the blossoming arrangement on R2P’s cover. In addition, the packaging features printed sleeves showing a take on traditional Hawaiian patterned prints of native flowers and tropical birds.

You may pre-order copy from GoldRobotRecords.com. Return To Paradise will be released on October 29th.
