Album Of The Week: Mannequin Pussy Romantic

This post was originally published on this site

Mannequin Pussy - RomanticThink about all the ways you’ve seen anxiety presented in music: David Byrne’s bug-eyed stare; Public Enemy’s siren-wail blurts; the way math-rock time shifts force you in and out of the groove. A lot of the time, this is music (and presentation) that puts the anxiety on you, that forces you into a state of … More »

Mannequin Pussy to release new album Romantic, tour, melt you

This post was originally published on this site

Signal boost: Philadelphia slayers/rippers Mannequin Pussy are on the verge of releasing their new, excellent album Romantic, with a thorough tour of America coinciding. Aside from being occasionally inspirational tweeters, MP is one of the best live bands currently working. Seeing them is like having your entire nervous system killed, melted, re-congealed, re-affirmed, and then brought back to life. Honestly, though, go to the tour (which you will have many opportunities to do starting October 21).

Romantic drops via Tiny Engines on October 28. Pre-order here in a variety of limited editions, and reacquaint yourself with album cut “Emotional High” below.

Mannequin Pussy – “Romantic”

This post was originally published on this site

Mannequin Pussy - "Romantic"Romantic. It sounds like such an antiquated word, feels like an old-fashioned concept from a different time. What does a romantic even look like in this day and age? Who could be naïve enough to place that much value in the idea of fresh love? Haven’t we all been exposed to enough heartbreak, heard about … More »

Mannequin Pussy - "Emotional High"Buckle up because Mannequin Pussy are about to release one of the best punk albums of the year. Seriously! I haven’t been able to stop listening since I first heard it earlier this month. I mention that only because the Philadelphia band specializes in short, concise songs and if the 90 seconds of “Emotional High” … More »
