Teenage Fanclub - Man-Made [LP] (180 Gram, download, bonus tracks)
Teenage Fanclub's Man-Made is August installment in the
Merge Records 25th anniversary reissue series.
Originally released in 2005, Man-Made is a classic Fanclub
record in tone and arrangement, and handsomely
demonstrates the ''less is more'' maxim--it is both airier and
more light of touch than it's immediate predecessors.
Teenage Fanclub made the record in Chicago with John
McEntire (Tortoise) at his Soma Electronic Music Studios.
Though McEntire's production is subtle, his unique
aesthetics are definitely apparent on Man-Made as odd
keyboards and sundry other inevitably electronic
apparatuses bubble and bleep just below the surface of
fuzzed-out guitars, chugging basslines, and layered vocals.
