Man Forever, the project of Oneida’s drummer Kid Millions, first saw the light in 2010. Kid Millions founded the project to perform his experimental drum compositions. As the label’s blurb puts it, Kid Millions’ “vehicle for exploring the outer limits of drum performance, was created to overwhelm, to investigate the nuances that bloom in the midst of repetitive music, and to act as a pure sound experience.”
Man Forever’s highly anticipated third new album, Pansophical Cataract, will hit stores on May 14th via Thrill Jockey. The album can be pre-ordered here, and the first 500 orders will be pressed in a limited edition orange vinyl.
As previously posted, Pansophical Cataract features two tracks, ‘Surface Patterns’ and ‘Ur Eternity’, and both were trimmed from 30 and 40-minute live versions to around 18-minute pieces.
Man Forever has just unveiled a pretty cool video for an excerpt from ‘Surface Patterns’ made by SR Palm. It’s a feast for the ears and the eyes. Check it out.
