Monroe Mustang
I Am The Only Running Footman EP

Iced-over and left for dead, Monroe Mustang's second release on Austin's Trance Syndicate/Emperor Jones recording conglomerate has been unearthed and re-animated by Jagjaguwar. All five members, Brian Barry, Taylor Holland, Christopher Linnen, Michael Linnen, and Jason Stout, share singing and songwriting duties while rotating instruments -- both onstage and in their home studio. Originally conceived as a concept album, each band member wrote, recorded, and produced their own song for this 5 song E.P. An odd collection that highlights the propensities of each of the Mustangs, veering from lo-fi-new-wave, to acoustic dirge, to sublime pop. ʇ
