New Artist Alert: Manic
Manic are a four piece indie rock band from LA, who create a lovely post-Radiohead mixture of lush, almost shoegazing layered guitar sound along with an Interpolish knack for melody. They recently signed to Suretone, the new label of ex-Geffen head Jordan Schur, with whom they've turned their first demo into the rather good Floorboards EP. In five tracks it displays a lot of potential, some of which can be heard in the track i've put up below. You can get more info over at the bands official site or hear some more music on their myspace.
By the way, after yesterdays Fugazi-fest, some people have been asking if i'll put the Albini Steady Diet demos up, which I will indeed do, probably within the next week, so stay tuned poppickers!
