Colin Monette' Debut Album Maudlin "Listen to the sounds of your heartbeat/counting on the tides to keep on rushing in..." These words of poetry are sung over Monette' low minor key guitar, the chord cycle reverberates across vacant hardwood floors, and you're swept off, a cloud on the western sky. Monette' voice is young and genuine. In the sure musical choices one might believe to hear a bedroom door slam, a bicycle' freewheel, stomping boots, a windchime. Perhaps a window was left open? In this environment Monette tells a tale as true instrumentalist' might, asking not what note it is, but what colour? 10 wholly original compositions of Life, Love, Music, and Art including an orginal cover painting.
