Monterey - The Motorway 7" EP

matinée 010   /   July 1999
 #monterey
  1. Another You
  2. I Don't Mind
  3. Motorway

Three-song debut from a New York City band featuring former members of the Autocollants and Coloring Book. Bright, orchestrated pop with girl/boy vocal interplay, intertwined guitars, and bass, plus touches of cello, melodica, and vibes. Perfect for fans of Club 8, La Buena Vida, and Blueboy.

 
reviews
Sophisticated pop with lovely do-do-do's, guy/gal vocal trade offs, and an entrancing, lush, but upbeat sound all around! Highly recommended!   --Twee Kitten
Monterey mix old style janglepop with violin and electronic elements, but despite this last bit this is no way an indie-dance thing. I'm occasionally reminded of The Busy Signals but Monterey don't have the hip-hop influence The Busy Signals have. Although part of Monterey's sound is old style janglepop, overall they have a more modern sound than most bands on Matinée.   --Aquamarine
Light, casual pop -- the kind of band you might expect the owners of Shelflife might be in. "Motorway" is an especially good, laid back tune.   --Popgeek
Outstanding indie-pop from Ed Autocollants/Diplomat Haircuts/Shelflife Records and company! Three terrific songs in the style of Autocollants.   --Tone Vendor
