“Muun Bato’s debut LP is outstanding with lush arrangements, impressive songwriting and deep sonic atmospheres.” - thepsychrock.com
All veterans of the Minneapolis music scene, Muun Bato includes current and former members of First Communion Afterparty, Flavor Crystals, Driftwood Pyre, Basement Apartment, Bella Koshka & 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. Last, but not least, Marie Debris joined the group on keys creating the final layer to Muun Bato’s dynamic sound.
Since performing their first show in January of 2019, Muun Bato has opened for such acts as; Mystic Braves, Triptides, Flaural & Run Westy Run. They were voted one of the “Best New Bands of 2019” by First Avenue, and continuously stage local shows.
“They had a sound unlike not only the other bands on the line-up but also unlike any other local band I had ever heard. Their take on indie rock was innovative and refreshing and definitely made them a stand out act of the night.” - Langen Goldstien: Twin Cites Media
Muun Bato’s self-titled debut LP was released in October of 2019 on transparent orange vinyl. The album was engineered & mixed by Vince Caro, then mastered by the late great Ed Ackerson. A second album & tour are in the works.
