Monsters Are Waiting

Who? Echo Park, California’s Monsters Are Waiting — Annalee Fery (vocals/keys), Eric Gardner (drums), Jonathan Siebels (guitar/bass), and Andrew Clark (bass/guitar) — are releasing their debut full-length album, Fascination, on Retone. The album’s available via iTunes now, and in regular stores July 18.

What’s the Deal? Fery’s angelic, sultry vocals float over the hypnotic guitar licks and bass lines of Siebels and Clark (who alternate instruments), and Gardner’s steady, subtle percussion. Fascination — and, in particular, the track “Don’t Go” — is a mellow, ambient project that’s sensual without being brash.

Fun Fact: “Time,” from Monsters Are Waiting’s debut, was featured in an April 2006 episode of the WB teen drama, One Tree Hill.
