Man Man is a Philadelphia six-piecer that TMT has covered extensively. What is missing from this coverage is the notion that, even if you aren’t thrilled with Man Man’s recorded music, you might, by attending a Man Man concert, become thrilled. Man Man have been known to dress in all-white clothing and war paint, shake with no remorse, and even play instruments while standing up. I myself got into Man Man by attending their concert on a whim. And if you’re anything like me, you should do the same, and you probably also like Speed Racer a lot.
Man Man have been compared over and over again to the same three artists. I won’t tell you who, but you can check out Pitchfork or Wikipedia if you care. It’s time to usher in a new era of Man Man criticism and analysis. From now on, Man Man will be thought of as a “playfully existential Viking-vaudeville punk-wop rock-and-soul collective,” at least according to TMT and Wikipedia, which I soon will have edited.
