Track Of The Day: Monster Rally - "Strange Creeper"

Leave a Comment

We’ve previously featured Ted Feighan - better known as South Pacific-inspired beat maker Monster Rally - in our Important Wax column, but the busy Ohio native is back at it with one of his longest efforts to date. At a massive-by-his-standards, five and a half minutes, “Strange Creeper” is the length of about three of his album tracks sandwiched together. And the track plays as such too.

“Strange Creeper” is an homage of sorts to Feighan’s mysterious neighbor, but in typical Monster Rally form the entire song is instrumental, leaving us only to assume that this neighbor is indeed a creep. We’re willing to take his word for it. Structured as four miniature movements, “Strange Creeper” weaves together blissful, tropical loops along with Feighan’s version of neighborhood noir. While some parts rely more on pulsating drum kicks than blurry piano keys, there’s no doubt that Monster Rally has a knack for the genre, a genre he helped spawn and now perfect. Few things pair better than a hot summer day and Monster Rally’s signature sound, so grab this one now while the timing is right.

Monster Rally's newest album Beyond The Sea is out now on Gold Robot Records.
