Man Man: FUV Live
The Philly-based band Man Man is probably best described as “experimental." Over the course of the quintet's career they have dabbled in so many different styles, everything from carnival music to gypsy punk.
However, on their latest release, On Oni Pond, the band has recorded a melodic pop record. Of course, as always, there's a hint of weirdness in there, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
During this session, taped in October, The Alternate Side's Russ Borris talked with Ryan Kattner, aka Honus Honus, about the making of this very radio-friendly new album.
Man Man will embark on a long tour of the States beginning on January 16 in Huntinton, WV and reaching the New York area on January 30 for a gig at Asbury Lanes in Asbury Park, NJ and Poughkeepsie's The Loft at the Chance Center on January 31.
Always a dynamic band onstage, Man Man offered up a kinetic live set of songs like "Born Tight" and "Head On" in Studio A. Watch videos below of Man Man and listen to the entire session now in the FUV Live vault or this Friday, January 10, on TAS on 91.5 WNYE at 11am EST, also streaming online.
