THE BABE RAINBOW SHARE JONO MA (JAGWAR MA) REMIX OF “MONKY DISCO” + ANNOUNCE 2018 UK & EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR
SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW ON
30TH CENTURY RECORDS / COLUMBIA RECORDS
How to make “Monky Disco”
Take a dozen of golden pippins; pare them nicely and take out the core with a small penknife, pop them into some water with 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg and let them be well scalded. Garnish with cinnamon and lemon-peel cut fine. You must take care that your pippins aren’t split.
So advise Australia’s The Babe Rainbow who today reveal a remix of their track “Monky Disco” by Jono Ma from Jagwar Ma.
“Monky Disco” is off the band’s debut self titled album, released this fall via Danger Mouse’s 30th Century Records/Columbia Records. Around its release The Babe Rainbow shared magical videos for album tracks “Peace Blossom Boogy,” “Losing Something,” and “Johny Says Stay Cool.”
In support of The Babe Rainbow LP the band toured North America playing to packed houses from coast to coast including a sold-out stop at Brooklyn‘s Baby’s All Right and a much-talked-about slot at the Desert Daze Festival. With today’s remix they announce dates for a 2018 headline UK tour followed by European shows – all dates below.
The seeds of The Babe Rainbow were sown when Jack “Cool-Breeze” and Angus Darling The Hothouse Flower started a songwriting partnership at high school, but the band didn’t fully-bloom until late in 2015 when, travelling through France, the duo met Venezuelan pianist Lu-Lu-Felix Domingo and became a trio. The band has previously released a self-titled EP featuring the single “Secret Enchanted Broccoli Forest.”
Recorded in “magicland” Byron Bay where the band is based, and produced by Stu Mackenzie of King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Babe Rainbow’s first LP is a think piece, stories from the dreamtime, all the colors of the rainbow. Expect timeless swirling sounds and endless good vibes.

“…a bright, often charming journey into a melodic, kaleidoscopic world…” – Exclaim
