The sound of an LSD infused Summer is coming your way via the lysergic music in the grooves of Paraphonic Vapors - the 2nd LP by Minneapolis based Muun Bato.
Muun Bato are veterans of the Minneapolis music scene and they include current and former members of; First Communion Afterparty, Flavor Crystals, Driftwood Pyre, Basement Apartment & more.Joe Werner & Andy Iwanin formed Muun Bato in 2018, quickly hatching a handful of sonic songs. Vince Caro soon added his own flourishing psych sounds to the mix, followed by Timothy S Ritter on bass & synth. In 2019, Marie Debris joined the group on keys creating the final layer to Muun Bato’s dynamic sound.
Paraphonic Vapours is full of melody, harmony and songcraft with a sound oscillating between psychedelic pop and space rock. Muun Bato channel the acid soaked sounds of the Syd / Floyd axis via a lush paisley underground jangle where swirling organs and spacey vocals create a far out dreamy and hallucinogenic trip - it is a sun-baked stunner that you need in your life.
