about the record

Music from Taiwan Mystery is the soundtrack of Mong Tong's art book series "台灣謎景 Taiwan Mystery." The book is a collection of Taiwan's cultural and mystic attractions, including special temples, purgatory facilities, and Buddhist mummies, which took more than six months of fieldwork and photography to put together for the book.


Mong Tong is brothers Hom Yu, Jiun Chi (they also play in ​Prairie WWWW​ 落差草原 WWWW & Dope Purple), and 仝. They listened to what they describe as "Dianziqin music 電子琴音樂" along with video game soundtracks, vintage Asian movie samples, and psychedelic music. These inspirations combine with Taiwanese folklore and a love of conspiracy theories to form what they describe as "superstitious music." Mong Tong means many things in Chinese, but the translation they choose to fit their music is “the east-side of dreams.” In an interview given with Psychedelic Baby Magazine, Mong Tong said, "We make blurry and raw music. Imagine that if ancient people could play guitar and bass, what would their music be like?"
