MP3 At 3PM: From Monument To Masses

fmtm2420Politically charged, electronic alt-rock outfit From Monument To Masses recently embarked on a national campaign with Dredg and Torche to promote its new album, On Little Known Frequencies (which came out last month on Dim Mak Records). FMTM mixes buoyant, Polyphonic Spree-esque synthesizer with pretty guitar melodies, rolling drums and a sprinkle of sampled dialogue. The San Francisco-based trio’s single, “Beyond God And Elvis,” is reminiscent of Broken Social Scene in the meandering path it takes through intense, instrumental lows and energetic, poppy highs—not unlike a candidate’s poll numbers during election season.
