Following Brutalism (2017) and Joy as an Act of Resistance (2018), two releases that garnered global critical acclaim, IDLES return with their highly anticipated third album – Ultra Mono. Sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record (including production contribution from Kenny Beats), the album doubles down on the vitriolic sneer and blunt social commentary of their past work. Not far beneath the surface of their self-admitted sloganeering lies a deeply complex and brutally relevant album that chews up clichés and spits them out as high art for the masses. This is momentary acceptance of the self. This is Ultra Mono.
Not far beneath the surface of their self-admitted sloganeering lies a deeply complex and brutally relevant album that chews up clichés and spits them out as high art for the masses. Active presence and self-acceptance also stand at the core of Ultra Mono, with much of the songwriting done on-the-spot in the recording booth, and the phrase “I am I” serving as a lyrical and spiritual mantra throughout.
The DELUXE edition features gatefold packaging featuring two front covers, heavyweight black vinyl, black & white printed dust sleeve, 28-page 11” x 11” catalog feat. debossed “ULTRA MONO” on a matte cover, black & white vinyl labels, sticker over the shrinkwrap with barcode + album details.
