iTunes Editors’ Notes

It may have been hard to decipher amid all the yelping and yearning of its last four LPs, but Man Man has been through a lot of lineup changes over the past 10 years. Which says a lot about why the band's tightest record yet also happens to be the only one that revolves around the band's longtime linchpins: drummer Christopher "Pow Pow" Powell and singer/keyboard-slammer Ryan "Honus Honus" Kattner. Here they play off each other's strengths—strangled Beefheart-isms, sucker-punched percussion, hooks that are weird and wooly yet ultimately quite wonderful—while keeping Kattner's track-attacking tantrums to a minimum. The pair emerges with a remarkably varied set of songs that distill its influences down to a decidedly strange brew. So while the shake, rattle, and wail of "Pink Wonton" is the Man Man "sound" personified, it's an outlier in a record that makes a point of stretching out stylistically, whether it's through rimshot dub rhythms ("King Shiv"), a straightfaced guitar solo ("Pyramids"), or a reverb-padded ukulele ("Deep Cover"). Here's hoping Powell and Kattner can keep the good ship Man Man stable from this point on.

Customer Reviews

Man I love this album.

Thier 5th and best album. Man Man just keeps getting better. Can't wait for the 6th one. Head On is an amazing song, and the rest of this album is proving the same. I rarely buy entire albums, I did with this one.

Man man

This is the best band to come around in years, if you haven't seen this band live go see them!

Man Man is the Best band band

A wonderful next step in their musical evolution, although I do slightly resent iTunes' assertion that the group's prior work was trivial, because it was NOT. Rabbit Habbits still holds up as a fantastic album, but that goes without saying, and is neither here nor there regarding On Oni Pond. Man Man is a truly original group forging their path in an uncertain time musically, with a large leap forward in some fashion or another on each subsequent outing.
