mounds & colin-l orchestra
Local greats Mounds return to LangLab along with the Colin-L
Mounds is a duo helmed by Tom Hohmann (USAISAMONSTER, Black Elf Speaks, (from)The Sky, etc). Tom plays drums, sings, and plays a floor synth with his left foot. DJ plays synth. Awesome angular rock that walks some hypnotic line between prog, The Doors, Native American history, The Incredible String Band, and Terry Riley.
Colin Langenus (born 1975, MD) is an underground legend, having played for 10 years in the world famous USAISAMONSTER. Releasing 7 LP’s during its tenure, USAISAMONSTER successfully toured Japan, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, Europe and England 5 times, and the States 10 times.
