Man Man “Top Drawer” from Rabbit Habits

The chorus is strangely pretty to me, made up of one big chord–even though it sounds like the guy’s saying something about hot dogs. It’s a lurching half-tempo kind of song, with carefully layered electric pianos, guitars, and marimbas. I like all the syncopation, which sounds really good on headphones. And then there’s a really nice kind of instrumental section (like Xhol Caravan or Soft Machine or something), which I think makes the chorus prettier each time you hear it. This music takes its time to build and make its statement.

There's nothing quite like Man Man, I will tell you that one. This album is becoming one of my favorite albums of '08.
