The Monochrome Set – Cosmonaut [2016]

For a band that got its start in the late ’70s, The Monochrome Set sound remarkably sprightly on their 2016 album, Cosmonaut. It’s their fourth album since main Monochrome man Bid re-formed the band in 2010, and it’s also their best since then. With Bid taking over the ...
