Jungol


Jungol, comprised of two brothers and one long-time friend, has created a sound that is a clear standout in the realm of experimental rock. Sometimes moody and ethereal, sometimes loud and complex, Jungol’s music stretches across a landscape of emotions, while simultaneously focusing on well-crafted songs that feature engaging vocals. “Much of the respect for Jungol by the Atlanta music community comes from the sheer originality of their songwriting, as well as their impressive technically skilled experimental style.

Jungol, comprised of two brothers and one long-time friend, has created a sound that is a clear standout in the realm of experimental rock. Sometimes moody and ethereal, sometimes loud and complex, Jungol’s music stretches across a landscape of emotions, while simultaneously focusing on well-crafted songs that feature engaging vocals. “Much of the respect for Jungol by the Atlanta music community comes from the sheer originality of their songwriting, as well as their impressive technically skilled experimental style.” Performer Magazine 2010 Founding members Josh and Graham Yoder have inhabited Atlanta’s rock scene with various ensembles since their high school years. Drummer Jason Monseur, the formidable force behind Jungol’s expansive beats, joined the brothers in 2003 and together, they have spread Jungol’s unique brand of rock across the U.S. They’ve toured the southeast multiples times since forming as a group, and have since expanded nationally with tours up the east coast as well as out west. In the spring of 2007, Jungol released their first full-length album Tiny Heaven, of which Music-Reviewer.com stated “…it is this experimentation that characterizes Jungol’s attempt to create a sound that pushes the envelope.

You can never predict what the next song will sound like because they all contain different structures, sounds, instruments, harmonies…” After their debut LP received glowing reviews, the band released Places, a 6 song EP unveiled in February 2009, which showcased Jungol’s renewed vision of more concise songs with prominent vocals. Places also demonstrated their passion for creating new sounds through the use of samplers, synths, glockenspiel, field recordings and string arrangements. Local blog Ohmpark listed Places as one of the top 10 Atlanta albums released in 2009. Jungol hasn’t merely captured the attention of critics – on April 30, the band performed before a sold-out crowd at the Earl for the release of their latest full-length album, Over the Sun and Under the Radar. The album marks Jungol’s first effort as a 3-piece and has been lauded by fans and critics alike.

The use of unconventional synth sounds and strong vocal melodies drive the songs on OTSAUTR, but at its core, rock still lives. Jungol followed up the release with a tour up the eastern seaboard before heading back to Atlanta to begin work on new material. “Over the Sun and Under the Radar presents the refined sound resulting from the immense growth and exploding creativity of a band that has been relentless on Atlanta’s music scene.” The Silver Tongue Jungol will begin touring again in the Summer of 2011 as well as releasing a free DVD which was filmed last April at the Earl in Atlanta GA. Material for the next Jungol album has begun to take shape as well, and the first single is already available as a free download from jungol.net. Expect to see more new songs being debuted this Summer.
