Nick Monaco – 5 Feet EP

Nick Monaco for the win! The Crew Love member and Dirtybird collaborator is back with a new EP for the latter, and it picks up where his stellar The Stalker EP left off. Monaco has a penchant for seamlessly mixing house grooves with a retro rock flair, topping it off by throwing his unique swagger in to nicely tie things up. Title track “5 Feet” is a straight forward house groove coupled by Monaco’s falsetto croon, tom accents an easy bass groove. It’s down and dirty but playful and easy to dance to. B-side, “American Holiday” has a tribal feel too it, constructing the groove out of various percussion noises while delayed guitar notes and and a warbling synth fill out the space in between. It’s a hypnotic and cosmic groove that pairs nicely to close out the record. Take a listen below:
