Formed roughly 10 years ago by Colin Langenus and Tom Hohmann, USAISAMONSTER have officially disbanded. Bummer. Actually, they officially disbanded last year, but I’ve sorely missed their psychedelic, proggy, Native American mythological songs ever since. The good news, however, is that the group has joined together one last time for the appropriately titled R.I.P., which also marks the first release off Brooklyn’s Northern-Spy, a new label formed by the team that resurrected ESP-Disk’. The disc sees Colin (guitars, vocals, keys, percussion) and Tom (drums, vocals) playing with Maxx Katz (keys, vocals, flute) and Peter Schuette (keys), with additional help from Jeremy Danneman (Parade of One) and TMT dreamboat Matt Mottel (Talibam!).

In related news, Colin has a new project called the Colin L Orchestra. Don’t think we’ll forget whose orchestra that is. Check out their Myspace here.
