Monotract were one of the “older” bands at the After The Jump Festival, as they have been recording and performing their compelling experimental “noise-wave” for a decade. In 2006, they caught the attention of Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, who signed them to Ecstatic Peace. Thurston also performed with Monotract at SXSW in 2007.

The late afternoon performance at After The Jump seemed a bit rushed due to time constraints, so that Monotract only played for 20 minutes. However, in that time frame they displayed the frenetic energy that has served them well for a decade of accolades. This is the matrix mix from the Galapagos stage and the sound recording is excellent. Enjoy!
