His behind-the-scenes work with Dirty Projectors brought notoriety that led to producing Ganglians new record, as well as re-envisioning the Appetite record.

Someday I'll put you on to all the Sactown rappers Moncrief collaborated with, making chopped and screwed songs – it goes that deep.
Moncrief's “Lament For Morning” is making the blogosphere rounds, including Altered Zones, Friendship Bracelet good ole Urban Os – I know this because I patron all these sites obsessively and love, love, LOVE my new Budweiser sweatshirt.
“Lament For Morning” is from Moncrief's upcoming Watered Lawn LP. No release date or label yet. The track is available for free download everywhere and here.
