Take a trip inside the mind of psychedelic rock legend Dave Wyndorf with MONSTER MAGNET’s ‘A Better Dystopia‘ – a delightfully psychotic selection of proto-metal and late-era psych songs that fit the band like a glove!
With wonderfully obscure song choices and excellent sequencing, the mighty Magnet pay homage to some of their favorite songs of all time, crafting another exciting and unique listening experience alike, what they’ve become famous for.
While the album marks a new frontier for MONSTER MAGNET as their first covers record, this is not your typical set of standards released to pass time. Wyndorf is at the top of his game on A Better Dystopia – howling, crooning, speaking… whatever it takes to get the emotional message of these very special tunes across, delivering each lyric in his own inimitable style.
Musicians Phil Caivano, Bob Pantella, Garrett Sweeney, and Alec Morton own the sound on A Better Dystopia – vintage and old school, dense and heavy, with searing fuzz leads and pounding bass and drums all played in a deft style that’s almost been lost in modern music. Drop the needle on any song, and A Better Dystopia comes up winning.
