This South By, Man Man were good good (last time we make that joke). We caught the face-painted Philly boys twice this week — both outdoors — once at Cedar Street Courtyard as part of the Anti- showcase (great), then a late-night set out at the way-off-the-beaten-path Scoot Inn for the Solid PR showcase (even better). We managed to get some video footage of Rabbit Habits standouts at the Cedar Street show — raucous, organ-pumping “Mister Jung Stuffed” and kazoo funk-vamp jam “Hurly/Burly.” Impressive beard growth, dudes. Can we do a top five bands of SXSW? OK, cool. Man Man makes the list. Meet “Mr. Jung”:

One more reason you should love the new Man Man record: Hurly slash Burly…

We love you Man Man.

    I did not like Hurly Burly on the CD but it sounds much better live. Thanks for posting this version.
    Are they playing Poor Jackie live?

  4. gotta admit that the new album isn’t really grabbing me like “six demon bag”. i saw them in florida and i thought the new material sounded pretty good alive but since the album has leaked, it seems something is lacking. maybe it’s a grower…but “poor jackie” is awesome.
