Man Man’s fourth album Live Fantastic comes out May 10th, and from the sounds of the new CD they’ve done a lot of living since their 2008 release. Bringing back their eccentric and wonderfully strange tunes, it’s another adventure into their euphonic world. Though a number of Man Man’s songs are a bit more sinister on Live Fantastic, I think the message of the album’s title is to do just that – live – despite life’s obstacles (which we all inevitable face).
As Honus Honus sings on the single “Life Fantastic:”
it’s how you hide your cards
it’s how you dress your scars
and let them breathe
