Man Man, consisting of frontman Honus Honus (Ryan Kattner), drummer Pow Pow (Christopher Powell), and musicians T. Moth (Jamey Robinson), Brown Sugar (Adam Schatz), and Shono Murphy (Bryan Murphy) creates a musical landscape as eclectic as the names of its members. This native-to-Philadelphia band has always been known for pushing the envelope and being fearlessly unique in its musical execution, but on the group's fifth full-length album On Oni Pond, which is set to release on September 10th on Anti- Records, they take their reputation to a new level. Based on intensive collaboration between frontman Honus Honus and drummer Pow Pow, the band has upped the ante on lyricism and musical prowess while still remaining very much Man Man. Says singer Honus Honus of the album, it is "a strange and beautiful record but it's also head on and fearless. It's not a record that's going to flirt with you, this is a record that's asking you out. If you get into bed with us there's going to be a relationship." The album was produced in part by Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes and First Aid Kit, and the mix of songs promises to provide for an enthralling and musically entertaining live performance. The single off the album, "Head On", was reviewed by The Key and the group's upcoming show at the Strand Capitol Performing Arts Center on October 25th and back-to-back performances at Union Transfer on October 30th and 31st are sponsored by WXPN.
