Not too much is known about Earl Monroe’s Homeless Quintet, except that the group derives from a group collaboration project of Future Death, which is an experimentation outlet out of Pasadena, Texas that consists of multi-instrumentalist – artist – beatmaker Francisco Cruz, and Earl Monroe.
The name of the album is quite strange – The Sequences That Release Your Inner Child Are Too Mad To Elaborate On While You Watch a Kid Get Got In The Middle of The Street, nonetheless the album’s work speaks for itself through its carefully chosen 70’s style sample cuts and sound treatments. All tracks were written and directed by Earl Monroe while the engineering and mixing was done by Francisco Cruz, both of who are (I think) extraordinary musicians in their own right.
Enjoy the music, and keep in mind that this album is a collection of experimental recordings. And while this album may be difficult to listen to at times, we believe the process of listening to music of this nature to be an ultimately rewarding experience.
