Despite 2011’s Life Fantastic signaling maturity, Man Man’s live show remains an unsinkable battleship. Piano-punching vocalist Honus Honus and percussion master Pow Pow face off up front, while a manic accord of xylophones, horns, noisemakers, and keys rattle jazz-studied freakouts and general musical mischief behind them. Through the bleached-white, feather-flying chaos comes a stirring ballad of love and dread. That’s what makes Man Man so effective as an experimental band. They start with a great song.
