Monotonix, “Before I Pass Away” MP3

January 07, 2011

If there's one thing we respect, it's having a google image search that results in multiple photos of you farting into a microphone for a large audience. Which means we really respect Monotonix singer Ami Shalev and basically no one else. Let that be your guide, bands of 2011. However, pulling off amplified flatulence requires that you also compose really good music, because once the winds die down, you still have an audience to entertain. Thankfully, Monotonix has this new song that is just that, though we would swap "away" for another word so that this post really hits all the high notes. "Before I Pass Away" is from the band's next album, Not Yet (Drag City, 1/25), and we imagine they will play it and do many other spectacular things on their upcoming tour, the dates for which are after the jump.
