Muun Bato

The sound of an LSD-infused Summer is coming your way via the lysergic music in the grooves of Paraphonic Vapors - the second LP by Minneapolis-based Muun Bato.

Muun Bato are veterans of the Minneapolis music scene and they include current and former members of First Communion Afterparty, Flavor Crystals, Driftwood Pyre, Basement Apartment, and more. Joe Werner and Andy Iwanin formed Muun Bato in 2018, quickly hatching a handful of sonic songs. Vince Caro soon added his own flourishing psych sounds to the mix, followed by Timothy S Ritter on bass & synth. In 2019, Marie Debris joined the group on keys creating the final layer to Muun Bato’s dynamic sound.

Paraphonic Vapours is full of melody, harmony, and songcraft with a sound oscillating between psychedelic pop and space rock. Muun Bato channel the acid-soaked sounds of the Syd / Floyd axis via a lush paisley underground jangle where swirling organs and spacey vocals create a far out dreamy and hallucinogenic trip - it is a sun-baked stunner that you need in your life.

Since performing their first show in January of 2019, Muun Bato has opened for such acts as; Mystic Braves, Bitches of the Sun, La Cerca, Triptides, Flaural, and Run Westy Run. They were voted one of the “Best New Bands of 2019” by First Avenue, and continuously stage local shows.

Muun Bato’s self-titled, debut LP was released October of 2019 on translucent orange vinyl, along with digital downloads via your favorite streaming services. Produced by Vince Caro and mastered by the late, great Ed Ackerson of Flowers Studio. Paraphonic Vapors reached audiences on October 1, 2021 via Little Cloud Records (Portland, OR) & Cardinal Fuzz (UK).
