Man Man: Head On
I’m personally a big fan of old cheesy horror films, if any of you came to that warehouse party we had a few years back that was ’1950s drive-in cinema’ themed, then you’ll hopefully have noticed the amount of effort we went to in decorating and well, getting really in to the theme. (Well I hope you did, I painted a mural on the wall!)
Man Man‘s video for ‘Head On’ has taken everything you could ever want from all the old horror flicks and mashed them together as one. There’s creatures that look like they could have climbed out of the black lagoon, there’s distressed dames running from zombies and gouls, there’s desperate romance, a mermaid, hell there’s even a car on fire for no apparent reason. But you know what my favourite part is? The saucy blonde lady playing the organ about half way through.
The boys are getting ready to release a new album on September 10th called On Oni Pond, produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit). For now you can stream it via Pitchfork here, and pre-order it here, or catch them on tour around the US.
It’s just one among many great new releases we’re excited about that are due out this month, say tuned for more!
