Monolith Cocktail Social Playlist #54: Erkin Koray, The Orb, Gary Tucker, The Weirdos…

April 8, 2021

PLAYLIST/Dominic Valvona

An intergenerational, eclectic playlist vision, the Monolith Cocktail Social is the blog’s imaginary radio show; a smattering of music from my personal collection, my DJ sets and a lot of music I just wished I owned. Devoid of themes, restraints, or trends, expect to hear anything and everything; including some tributes to album that celebrate their 50th, 30th and 10th anniversaries: The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers (represented by The 5th Dimension’s diaphanous honed chorus take on ‘Moonlight Mile’), The Doors L.A. Woman (represented by the under-the-counterculture Gary Tucker and his version of ‘Hyacinth House’), Panda Bear’s Tomboy (the man himself in this instance) and The Orb’s Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld (again, the men themselves).

We Need Your Help:

Hi, my name is Dominic Valvona and I’m the Founder of the music/culture blog For the last ten years the blog has featured and supported music, musicians and labels we love across genres from around the world that we think you’ll want to know about. No content on the site is paid for or sponsored and we only feature artists we have genuine respect for /love. If you enjoy our reviews (and we often write long, thoughtful ones), found a new artist you admire or if we have featured you or artists you represent and would like to buy us a coffee at to say cheers for spreading the word, then that would be much appreciated.
