ICYMI: MY MAN – Foul Brood
I’ll be the first one to tell you I’m not usually a huge fan of folk in general (that’s usually David territory, and I think that my OCD brain just isn’t stimulated enough like it is with prog rock), but this is not the case with Toronto folk pop outfit MY MAN… though the fact that the quartet opens their debut three-track release Foul Brood with an Arrested Development reference might have something to do with it…
Nevertheless, their boy-girl duel-singing vocal sensibilities in general and the prominent horn accompaniments in Adoyee add a few more layers than the typical folk fare – and let’s face it, they stick a “folk” tag on Bandcamp, but they do lean a little heavier on the indie pop than folk here on their debut.
There’s also a really interesting FLEETWOOD MAC/EAGLES-evoking guitar breakdown in This Song Is A Social Experiment amongst the shifting time signatures and disparate musical ideas that gives it a little more of the prog-ish feel that I’m akin to – stream it below to see what I’m talking about.
If you like what you hear you can also download Foul Brood for a pay-what-you-can download over on Bandcamp.
