Monta at Odds and Haymaker Records release Blade Runner-inspired album “Robots of Munich”
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas City-based Haymaker Records releases Monta at Odds’ Robots of Munich locally, on limited edition red vinyl and digital media on November 28th, 2014 for Black Friday Record Store Day 2014. Worldwide distribution kicks off on December 9th, 2014. Robots of Munich is Monta at Odds’ fifth release, a concept album inspired by the Blade Runner / Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? storyline. A live performance of material from Robots of Munich will be performed by Monta at Odds on November 28th 6:00PM at Mills Record Company in Kansas City, MO.
The melding of lo-fi vintage gear with electronic undercurrents leads Robots of Munich through its dusty grooves and modern manners, mimicking the physically immersive live spectacle of a Monta at Odds live performance. The storyline questions human and robot empathy, following a group of androids who survived the slaughter at the uprising in Munich. As they escape to South America, the small group delves into the crumbling culture in an attempt to grasp humanity and make the most of a limited lifespan spent evading the pursuit of the android hunter. More than just a mental adventure, the sonic tease of Robots of Munich is rife with deft contrasts of striking groundedness and elevated electronica, hinting toward a special blend akin to LCD Soundsystem, Kraftwerk, Pink Floyd, and Talking Heads. Short story segments and accompanying online visuals make Robots of Munich a nimble indirect sequel as well as an intriguing work of art on its own.
