Manwomanchild – Reasons

This one came from out of the blue (or if I’m being less economical with the truth via an email from a fan of the band”¦cheers dave) and immediately sat at the top of the pile. Details about Manwomanchild are scant save for the fact that they live in Chicago. They could also read he for that’s what the press pics would tend to suggest. ‘Reasons’ is raw, adventurous and a wonderful reminder of an Irish band of yore called the Ultra Montanes who delivered a clutch of sparkling singles in the mid-nineties. It’s the juxtaposition of the shiny chords and the slightly coarse vocals where the alchemy happens and for that reason my groaning index finger is cursing me for organising endless replays. A band that all the family can savour. KD

    It’s not surprising that you like this… the guitar hook is similar to The Very Most’s “April is the Cruelest Month”. It took me a while to figure it out when I heard it…
