Cultural Bulletin
Cultural Bulletin is a quarterly magazine that provides an international view of creative work. We look to film, music, design and art as signifiers of our cultural moment.



In asking the question, 'what is the role of pop music now?’ Patricio Garcia’s answers with ‘Monotone Talk’ - ‘A rock’n’roll for the XXI century.’ It is a suitably hyper track which takes the commodification of our times to its illogical conclusion over a brain-bending 5 minutes. Part electronic music, part rock, very pop and very much weird - his forthcoming album Listen In Awe promises to deliver on its promise. If it can match the strangeness of ‘Monotone Talk’, it will no doubt share parallels with the uniquely surreal times we live in. AG
