Rain Dog

There Be Monsters (feat. Monsoonsiren & Finn Ryder)

Project: Mooncircle

Released: 30th September 2016 | 16 track garage album

'There Be Monsters', the sophomore full length effort by Samuel Evans, or Rain Dog, is an auditory exploration into the unchartered regions of his own mind and the edges of experience. Dealing with many personal changes which continuously prolonged the creation process of the album, Evans channelled and processed a variety of experiences into a highly personal album. Essentially coming full circle, 'There Be Monsters' attempts to draw a map for your mind - it is on the fringes of consciousness that the interesting things happen.

David Foster Wallace wrote 'loneliness is not a function of solitude', paraphrasing Marianne More: 'the cure for loneliness is solitude'. A common thread throughout the album. After his highly acclaimed debut album Two Words in 2014 (BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 3, BBC 6 Music, Boiler Room, Red Bull, Thump, XLR8R) Rain Dog comes back to deliver his sophomore full length 'There Be Monsters'. Avoiding the plight of the second album and keeping his signature sound while also not repeating himself, the album is the result of years of work, scrapped previous projects and simplifying his writing process and gaining experience by creating soundtracks for Vice Documentaries. The track titled 'Eyes On The Aether' is representative of a turning point and each track has particular relevance to a point in Sam Evans life over the last few years.

'There Be Monstes' comes out worldwide on limited vinyl (including download code).
