Do you like Philadelphian music? Do you like neo-circus (nu-circus?) music? Do you like bands with names like The The, Duran Duran, the Go-Gos, and Talk Talk? Do you have a thing for streaming an album before it’s released? Oh, or a blistering dose of delicious musical explosive weirdness?
Then you’d be wise to jump over to Stereogum to listen to Man Man’s Life Fantastic: Stream.
Earlier this week, we posted on our most anticipated releases of 2011, saying of Kurt Vile’s upcoming Smoke Rings for my Halo “Which Philly album is more hotly desired, Kurt Vile’s or Man Man’s? With Kurt’s new single ‘In My Time’ demonstrating a more approachable sound, it has to be his. Until we hear music from Man Man’s at least.”
And now, Kurt’s released the second single from it. “Jesus Fever” demonstrates Vile’s amazing knack for letting his repetitive guitar line fall all over the place until it reaches a fragile perfection. Clock’s ticking, Man Man.
Kurt Vile, “Jesus Fever”
