After a steady stream of releases over the last few years, Los Angeles-via-Ohio beatmaker Ted Feighan – doing business as Monster Rally – is back with his third full-length album, “Return to Paradise” (coming in October). Its first single is the shimmering and seductive “Orchids,” which begins with a dusty riff that wouldn’t be out of place on a tropical beach, and further builds into a dense, exotic production. This track sounds like Flying Lotus remixed “The Godfather” theme outside a Parisian café, prickling guitar strings gliding over layers of eclectic percussion. The album’s artwork above also matches the vibe, a flourishing floral collection of fifty-some vivacious worldly specimens.
