Man Man

February 6, 2008

Philadelphia’s extraordinary Man Man bring the big-top carnivalesque sideshow back to town, with deference to (now label-mate) Tom Waits as ringleader in tow. The quintet’s last outing from 2006, Six Demon Bag, was a bizarro funhouse ride of a record. The first track to emerge from their new album, Rabbit Habits, places the Man Man back on that dizzying ride, showcasing their talents like the theme of some eerie cryptkeeper automaton saloon at psycho-Disneyland.

Listen: “Top Drawer” from the forthcoming Rabbit Habits, available on Anti Records 4/8/08. Also, “Van Helsing Boombox” from Six Demon Bag, available on Ace Fu Records.
