Dwelling somewhere between the grandiose rock of Pink Floyd, the experimental staccato of Built To Spill and the shuffling funk of Earth, Wind & Fire lies MainMan, a Southern California quartet born from frustrated prior incarnations and longtime friendship. After finishing up their West Coast run supporting Ben Kweller, MainMan has been recording at the legendary Henson Studios with new releases on the way. Singer Morgan Demeter’s plaintive and urgent vocals alternately soothe and jar as he wrestles with themes ranging from understanding the human experience to examining the relationships that both comfort and torture us. Backed by former Bear On Fire members Chris Mintz-Plasse and Nick Chamian, and The Hammerhead's Ryan Dean, Demeter’s melodies float among ethereal yet strangely familiar tones. Indeed what truly draws you into MainMan’s songs is their musicality; originality and knack for making the unpredictable seem effortless.
