[tube196] Mons Jacet – City of Youth

Test Tube Netlabel:

«Lithuanian artist Mons Jacet returns for a new release at test tube, after the 2008 mini-LP ‘Songs of Night and Longing’. However, expect no drones or winter-inspired landscapes as ‘City of Youth’ keeps trailing the path laid down by Rakshtinas’ latest work for Enough Records – ‘Chronicles Of Anarcho Punk Kid’. This new path relies heavily on twisted IDM-flavored beats and pointy basslines, with sudden turns everywhere from start to finish. Enough Records called it ‘breakcore punk emotronica’, and while this label may seem too colorful for a moment, after you listen to the album one full time, you’ll see it hits the spot.

Memorable moments from ‘City of Youth’ are 10+ minute long ‘Driving for Brandy’, ‘The smells of your skin’ and a couple others, but overall there isn’t a single dull moment in this long album, every song has something new to offer and with each repeated listen you’ll be rewarded with different perspectives of the compositions.
There is great pleasure in discovering rare albums such as this one.»

– Pedro Leitão
