Monta at Odds
Kansas City, MO
Monta at Odds is a post-punk electronic collective that ventures into dark synthpop, psychedelia, artrock, and dub echo grooves. Sonic prognosticators, Monta At Odds is a Kansas City combo led by the brothers Dedric and Delaney Moore. Dedric's pulsing, melodic bass and Delaney's artfully unhinged synthesizers frame the band's central character, which is fleshed out by a talented cast of KC musicians and collaborators who also lead their own fantastic groups. Mikal Shapiro lends her lead vocals and guitar, Krystof Nemeth (Emmaline Twist) on baritone, Kenn Jennkowski (the Republic Tigers) on synths, Matthew Heinrich (Mysterious Clouds) on drums. Lucas Behrens on guitar and synth. With releases on the Record Machine, 8D Industries, Upstairs Recordings (CAN), Liquid Sound Design (UK), Citrona Recordings and Haymaker Records, the aural exploration never stops. Monta at Odds also runs Kosmic City and curates Outer Reaches fest, KC Psychfest, and 3Deep visual concerts.
