Performer Notes
  • What a difference two years makes. In 2006, Philadelphia wierdos Man Man released their second album, an off-the-wall slab of musical insanity as confusing as it was arresting. In 2008, a move to a bigger label finds the highly theatrical band fully utilizing all the tricks in its bag (cartoon percussion, Tom Waits-like junkyard/thrift-shop arrangements, twisted carnival atmospheres, and an Animal Collective-like penchant for experimentation) without losing focus on their songs or their overall sound. While a freewheeling, try-anything-once aesthetic reigns, it's utilized in service of carefully constructed songs whose structure remains at the center of every track. RABBIT HABITS is the sound of an expansive, anarchic ensemble finding its feet and using its outsider orientation to both push existing boundaries and forge powerful new ideas.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.135) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hey've raised a lightning rod high into the storm their predecessors channeled so well, pulling down a manic energy all their own....You'll find a ramshackle genius in the band's new wave kitchen-rock..."

Magnet (p.108) - "RABBIT HABITS, in its feral way the tightest of the band's albums, sounds like the noisy work of a single organism thrumming and wailing on all the instruments in the studio at once. The same goes for the group's unashamedly enthusiastic live shows..."

CMJ - "[A] playful, instrumentally eccentric third album..."
