Man Man, VAZ, and Blood Feathers at Northsix
Above New York and Philadelphia debris MAN MAN materializes, tender and nightmarish, fastening together Screaming Jay Hawkins, Etta James, 80's pop and Iggy Pop; drawing on Soda Popinski, Mexican funeral marches, religious cults, bad luck, and the pervasive mythology of two-headed wolves and wrangling out something entirely else: peculiarly brilliant, acrobatic, unsettling, romantic, unpretentiously ordered.
Accompanied on one song by a chorus of kindergartners, MAN MAN multiplies precise instrumentation and refined song structure by unusual rhythms and a thick, complex texture to produce a polished eclecticism unlike anything in our collective musical consciousness.
With VAZ (ex- Hammerhead) and Blood Feathers.
