MTV & Ice Cream from the album “Retire the Modern Self”

“Mons (if I may call them Mons…) offers up a fuzzy indie sound that’s got its own brand of measured aggression, but is ultimately drenched in elegance. This is all capped off by narrative lyrics that had me actually concerned about the subject, which I found both weird and pleasurable.” – The Corvallis Advocate

“The band combines the jangling guitar sounds of artists like The Mountain Goats, My Morning Jacket and Lord Huron with the contentious clash of vocals—similar to Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy.” – The Daily Barometer

“Their music is a crafted collection of instantly memorable melodies that are filled with complex arrangements, sounding like Wilco and Minus The Bear.” – The Daily Barometer

“With the smooth vocals, gentle guitar picking that picks up into a speedy but Oregon-esque song, you can feel the vibe the band is going for …  you want to grab your Birkenstocks, put on your favorite flannel, and go on a hike in your local forest while listening to this album.” – Cassette
