Back to Mono

The Monolators are a Los Angeles-based duo that plays lo-fi garage pastiche-rock. Sometimes they’re an indie-pop band, as on “I Was a Captain in the Army,” but sometimes they play fake metal songs. Sometimes they get a bit ahead of themselves, literally — the drums on “Captain” go a little too fast, making the band race to catch up. It’s endearing; the song being catchy and likeable doesn’t hurt, either.

L.A. kids: the band is playing tonight at the Echo at 8 p.m.
