Title: Saturnalia Regalia
Label: Mint Records

2014 debut album from the Canadian guitar Pop band. Monomyth is a crown jewel in the court of the crimson and clover. The Halifax four-piece carries on the hallowed East Coast tradition of 'janglophile' pop with a smirking sense of humor, stadium-sized hooks and starry-eyed harmonies from the barbershop of broken dreams. Following a pair of self-released cassettes and a two-song quick hitter for tape label Craft Singles, SATURNALIA REGALIA heralds their triumphant LP debut. Though there's a clear sonic lineage with the holy Halifax trinity of Sloan, Thrush Hermit and the Super Friendz (whose bassist Charles Austin assisted in this album's production), Monomyth also invokes the amber-encased Americana of Big Star, prankster pop moves of the dB's and the Soft Boys, Television's tangled guitar monies, MBV's tremolo-gaze, and the radiant ramble of Relatively Clean Rivers.
