Manes - _[view]_
(Aural Music, 2006)
by: Pedro Azevedo (5 out of 10)
The first track of this new EP by Manes reminded me of something that In the Woods... might possibly be doing today if they were still active; so I was interested to see where Manes would take things for the remainder of the disc. The answer is that they take it to much less predictable places than I ever expected, with a mix of electronic, ambient, post-rock and who knows what else -- with even a Duran Duran cover of sorts thrown in. The resulting material strikes me as interesting, boring, enjoyable and silly (usually not all at the same time) so I guess I should call this a real hit and miss affair, with some unfortunate emphasis on the latter. Those who feel instinctively attracted by musical experimentation should definitely give this a try, while others may prefer safer roads.
