Man Man - Life Fantastic
Man Man - "Shameless"
The songs do some jumping around from the dark and dreary to the caustic Piranhas Club set to music that sounds like a 50s do-wop anthem while he sing's "the world is a shit show, as bad as the sequel". While the music is arranged to perfection in it's own unusual way their lyrical abilities stand up to it. It commands an intent listener which is a rare thing to conjure up these days.
The current musical atmosphere is applauding bands like Tune-Yards and Odd Future for their fresh take on music and for shaking things up but I think Man Man deserves recognition for the very same qualities, especially since they've been doing it remarkably well for much longer than the other bands.
