This album actually came out in November, but I’ll still call it new because this website didn’t even exist yet and there isn’t much new music coming out right now. Anyways, Ted Feighan is a music producer from Cleveland who makes plunderphonic beats under the moniker Monster Rally. His samples are generally piano or guitar sounds taken from exotica albums and the warm crackling sound of vinyl is evident throughout the entire album as evidence that vinyl sampling still exists. Mystery Cove is very chill and soothing. It’s by no means on the same level as The Avalanches as far as plunderphonics goes, but it’s nice if you’re into that type of thing.
