Michael O. - Really?
Michael O.
Really?
LP | 2015 | US | Original (Fruits & Flowers)
22,99 €*
Release:2015 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Michael O. (Olivares) of beloved Bay Area psych-pop band The Mantles has been steadily building songs in his basement in Oakland with the help of Horrid Red’s Edmund Xavier for the past few years. The result is this affecting collection of cracked pop hits and tragic ballads. The Mantles are known to lay down a thick electric jangle, but with Michael's solo songs the focus rests on rough-hewn vocal melodies and lyrics, laced with synths, acoustics, clarinet and noises. Really? arrives one year after the release of his Face The Facts single and with it Michael tumbles headfirst into Modern Lovers, Tronics, Kevin Ayers, Jacobites and Tall Dwarfs territory... home recorded & highly personal, but not lo-fi, please.

Release:2014 / US – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
For the uninformed among you, Nodzzz tore up the West Coast in the late ‘00s; their pithy debut single “I Don’t Wanna (Smoke Marijuana)” was an underground hit if such a thing exists, while their second nearly posthumous LP Innings (Woodsist) with its heavier lyrics and lyrical guitars is an unheralded pop classic. Frontman Anthony Atlas relocated to his native East Coast and began collaborating with drummer Peter Hilton and lead guitarist Sean Monaghan on a band called Piano Movers. For us Piano Movers belongs in the lineage of musicians who tuck in their shirts and wear glasses: The Feelies, The Embarassment and any number of angular pop bands haunting Athens, Georgia in the early '80s. While the Nodzzz neurotic energy and humor is intact, Piano Movers sound and content is more three dimensional, their debut single gorgeously captured in a hi-fi setting by Jarvis T. from Woods.

The inaugural offering from Fruits & Flowers is a very special treat. It's the first solo release by Michael O., aka Michael Olivares, the front-man for Bay Area band THE MANTLES, who've made records for Slumberland, Mexican Summer and Siltbreeze amongst others. While The Mantles peel off ragged west coast psych, here Michael O. steps into eccentric pop territory. Working in his basement in Oakland & in SF with Edmund Xavier (Horrid Red, etc), Michael O. built a mini-masterpiece of pop with elements of art-rock, new wave & psych-folk, DIY but not lo-fi. It's tempting to add some musical references, but this record is difficult to pin down to a particular era or style. We advise that you just throw this on and get lost in the cracked and glorious world of Michael O. This 7" EP features two Michael O. originals on side A and a pop take on an early Scorpions tune on the B-side.
