Man Man – Xenia Rubinos

On September 10, Anti- will release the new album by MAN MAN entitled On Oni Pond. The band’s latest features an arresting reconstruction of MAN MAN’s visionary sound – stripped to its core and rebuilt as something new and compelling yet still very much MAN MAN. This marked shift is a direct result of an intensive collaboration between the band’s frontman, Honus Honus, and drummer Pow Pow, who has assumed a new-found prominence in the songwriting process, bringing an exhilarating array of new rhythmic ideas to the mix. “With this album we got to do something that very few bands or creative people get to do which is a reboot, and one that feels natural,” comments Honus Honus.

The compositions were further honed by the band members along with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit) into a compelling mash-up of Fear Of Music era Talking Heads, classic soul, psychedelia, hip hop, and 50’s rock and roll. With its imaginative yet economical rhythms, huge hooks, and overriding sense of urgency, On Oni Pond melds these seemingly disparate influences into an unexpectedly lush, melodic album, exquisitely consolidated by the band’s unique and affecting vision.

Magic Trix by Brooklynite Xenia Rubinos might cause an initial reaction like you are being tasered (bro). There is little to compare to the sharp, thick spine of a keyboard sound that shoots at you from the very first moments. Surprisingly, the record’s aggressive sound is achieved without the use of guitars. Xenia, together with drummer/sound magician Marco Buccelli, create a dozen aggressively danceable songs. An oblique assemblage of uncommon rhythms, powerhouse vocals and dance-til-you-puke energy combine to make Magic Trix one of the most exciting debut albums in years.

Having toured the US nationally including official showcases at SXSW, Xenia continues touring steadily in support of her new album release. Xenia’s music has been celebrated by fans and critics alike with features in NPR, MTV, Fader, and WNYC.
