See below for early raves and be sure to catch MAN MAN on tour.

"The most enjoyable weird record of their career." - Magnet

"On Oni Pond continues its tradition of clever rock with an off-center perspective, putting its songs' hooks front and center." - Wall Street Journal

"It's poppier than ever before, with big hooks played with funk and bossa nova fills, fat Balkan brass and imaginative lyrics full of bug-eyed images." -Uncut

“Evolving from their excitable and divisive Beefheart/Zappa -influenced early work into rich and resonant piano pop that values populism over provocation." - Pitchfork

“Man Man frontman Honus Honus (Ryan Kattner) has always had his heart firmly planted on his sleeve. On his band’s fifth album, On Oni Pond, the experimental-rock showman sharpens his Frankenstein mash of genres down to a gleaming point and plunges it deep into his carotid artery.” - Filter

"Maturity suits the group, and "Pink Wonton," "Sparks," "Paul's Grotesque," and "Head On" have all the makings of breakout singles with their fun, memorable choruses and subtle yet clever musicianship." - All Music Guide
