30,000 Monkies Streaming EP Online

CVLT Nation is currently hosting a stream of Belgian act 30,000 Monkies' new EP “Somewhere Over The Painbow,” which is set for release on October 11th, 2013 through ConSouling Agency.

Check out the full EP stream below. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"30,000 Monkies is a stoner noise quartet from Beringen, Belgium, whose sonority is often described as experimental not because the band tries to merge a wide variety of sounds and textures in order to create something awkward, but due to their non-linear approach to song structures and sounds that brings to mind a noisier version of Melvins jamming with Flaming Lips.

"Their first EP Womb Eater Wife Beater released in 2011, showcased the band blending the sludgy heaviness of bands like Melvins and Harvey Milk with elements of psychedelia and noise-rock. For their newest EP, Somewhere Over The Painbow, they have opted to offer a more straightforward version of their aesthetic, but still retain a bit of their experimental edge by launching into some weirdo riffing and sounds throughout these four new tracks."
