MAN MAN

On September 10, Anti- will release the new album by MAN MAN entitled On Oni
Pond. The band’s latest features an arresting reconstruction of MAN
MAN’s visionary sound – stripped to its core and rebuilt as something
new and compelling yet still very much MAN MAN. This marked shift is a
direct result of an intensive collaboration between the band’s frontman,
Honus Honus, and drummer Pow Pow, who has assumed a new-found prominence in
the songwriting process, bringing an exhilarating array of new rhythmic
ideas to the mix. “With this album we got to do something that very few
bands or creative people get to do which is a reboot, and one that feels
natural,” comments Honus Honus.

The compositions were further honed by the band members along with producer
Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit) into a compelling mash-up of Fear Of
Music era Talking Heads, classic soul, psychedelia, hip hop, and 50’s rock
and roll. With its imaginative yet economical rhythms, huge hooks, and
overriding sense of urgency, On Oni Pond melds these seemingly disparate
influences into an unexpectedly lush, melodic album, exquisitely
consolidated by the band’s unique and affecting vision.

“This is a strange and beautiful record but it’s also head on and
fearless,” says Honus Honus. “It’s not a record that’s going to
flirt with you, this is a record that’s asking you out. If you get into
bed with us there’s going to be a relationship.”

On Oni Pond also expresses Honus Honus’ evolution as a lyricist.
Consistently inventive, the lyrics now have a new poignancy and insight that
makes this album as personal and reflective as it is joyous. The thematic
centerpiece of the record, and first single, is the bittersweet,
deconstructed soul anthem “Head On.” Simultaneously melancholy and
inspiring, the track features a unique take on personal resilience
exemplified by the lines, “Are you dreaming of death? Are there ghosts in
your chest?” and “I need new skin for this old skeleton of mine ‘cause
this one that I’m in has let me down once again over time,” which build
into the refrain “Hold onto your heart, hold it high above flood waters,
hold onto your heart, never let nobody drag it under.”

With On Oni Pond, Man Man has delivered a beautifully weird and
unforgettable collection of songs. From the pounding syncopated drumming,
psychedelic organ and impassioned crooning of “Pink Wonton” to the
sneering new wave dub of “King Shiv” and the big beat bratty swagger of
“Loot My Body,” this is an undeniably ambitious band reborn to new,
focused greatness.

Sylvan Esso

Sylvan Esso is a collaboration between vocalist Amelia Meath and electronic musician Nick Sanborn. Meath’s powerful voice is front and center, unjoined by fellow harmonizers as it is in her folk group, Mountain Man. Sanborn, who plays bass in the genre-destroying Megafaun, creates intricate, pulsing grooves for Meath’s voice to inhabit. The pair’s debut is the Hey Mami / Play It Right 12″, a “single” with 2 A sides, featuring a capella and instrumental versions of each song.
