Tiny Engines To Release Monument LP

Tiny Engines (Tigers Jaw, Castevet, Look Mexico) is excited to announce that in early 2011, it will release Goes Canoeing, the highly anticipated debut full-length from Washington, D.C. outfit Monument.
The label will be pressing the album on 12" vinyl and will also handle the digital side of things. LP pre-orders will launch in mid-December while the digital version was released last week and is currently available via iTunes and other online retailers. Additionally, Tiny Engines has made the entire record available for download on Bandcamp for a limited (pre) pre-order price of $5. The special will only be available for the next three weeks, or whenever pre-orders launch ... whichever comes first.
Monument has also self-released a CD version of Goes Canoeing. Grab it here or from the band at shows.
On that note, the band's CD release show will be held on December 10th at Hole In The Sky in Washington, D.C. For more info, go here.
Currently Monument is streaming three new tracks from the record on myspace, including "Roots Run Deep" which you can also download as a mp3 directly from Tiny Engines. And even more recommended listening - Monument's back catalog, which is available for free.
Well worth the wait, Monument's much buzzed about debut full-length fulfills the potential that the quartet's 2009 3 Song 7" hinted at and finds its songwriting prowess growing by leaps and bounds. Goes Canoeing isn't so much a melding of styles but rather the culmination of a vast array of influences, not to mention years of members playing in bands such as The Summer We Went West, Dawn Treader and The Tasty Habits. From, math-y emo, post-punk, noise-pop, grungy 90's indie rock and even the Dischord-styled hardcore of the band's D.C. home, Goes Canoeing is as loose and raw as it is infectious and intricately layered. Recorded by Algernon Cadwallader's Joe Reinhart, these 10 songs are bursting with acrobatic guitars, spirited gang vocals and uncommonly catchy melodies, all bolstered by Monument's creativity and undeniable enthusiasm. The first great, essential release of 2011.
