To celebrate ten years since the release of their album 'The Casket Letters', folk-pop five-piece Monkey Swallows the Universe are reuniting for two summer shows, including an appearance at Sheffield City Hall. Nat Johnson, Kevin Gori, Cate Tully, Andy George and Rob Dean will reprise the roles that saw them ‘put the cor back into recorder’ in the mid-'00s.
Their second and final album, 'The Casket Letters', was released on Loose Records in 2007. MSTU will be playing the album in full, with a sprinkling of other faves too.
Reviews for The Casket Letters:
The Guardian – “The band are ghostly on Gravestones and giddy on Matterhoney’s waltzing pop, but it’s their maturity and restraint that impresses.”
The Times – “Beneath the cosy wool can lurk some nasty, if always softly spoken, surprises. This Sheffield band’s lovely second album abounds with these.”
