I’ve long had a soft spot for Monroeville Music Center and I can’t really explain why. It might be the project’s name (which is really great and evocative) but it’s mostly the quality of the tunes he produces. “Coast Phase” is a nostalgic beast. The synth leads on this tune are beyond. Every time I listen to it, I am drawn to a time in my life I try to forget. Transportive leads or not, everything on this tune falls in the right place. It’s catchy and tugs at all the right emotions to beg for repeated plays. Hopefully “Coast Phase” is a teaser for a new album to come.
