On Oni Pond

Man Man - 2013

Ok, it's like this. "Head On" (the first single) is one of the best songs I heard all year. Not to mention the video is amazing. Even if the rest of the record was bad, it'd still be on my top ten. As luck would have it, the rest of the record is pretty solid. There are a few songs that feel like failed experiments (Pyramids, Paul's Grotesque) or retreads of tired/familiar territory (Loot My Body) but there are also gems like End Boss, King Shiv, Deep Cover, and Sparks (which may take the crown as my favorite for 2013).

I'm glad you enjoyed Pond. Personally, I was delighted for Ryan Kattner when I heard 'Head On' at Ruby Tuesday. Will we get a further sell out on the next album? Perhaps a duet with The Black Keys will give Man squared the Grammy nomination they want so badly!

Hey, it gets ugly out there - I can't hold it against him. I'm as embarrassed that it was playing at Ruby Tuesday as I'm sure you are for eating there.
