Being a jamtronica band, Oklahoma City act Montu is at the distinct
disadvantage of playing a style of music that simply works better in a
live setting than on a recording. Even so, Bloom
is a solid
effort that never drags — thanks to brilliant pacing any working band
should note — and Montu steps over the hump, so to speak, and shows
there’s no need to confine its tunes to live consumption only.
