Boomkat Product Review:
Some great power-pop action from Manatee, the new band featuring Black Tambourine's Mike Schulman. Keith Neal's lead vocal evokes the unlikely presence of Ian Curtis while the rest of the band romp through a full-throttle, upbeat jangle. Comparisons have been made to the likes of The Replacements and The Ramones, although you'd have to say that 'Indecision' is far more playful than that - something confirmed by the cheery DIY, bedroom indie scrawl of 'Fifteen Minute Drive'. Let's hope there's an album in this band that can sustain this sort of form.
