Stories EP (Single)
Released: Sep 2011
Label: Buzzin' Fly
Mano Le Tough, aka Ireland's Niall Mannion, now based in Berlin, proves that he's really a softie at heart on these three tracks for Ben Watt's Buzzin' Fly label. The bells, staccato percussion and trim arpeggios of "Stories" feel skeletal at first, but it fills up with Mannion's own heartfelt vocals, hugging the line between club track and pop song. The instrumental "Take It Back" is even more of a tearjerker, like vintage New Order spun through a house-music kaleidoscope, while "From the Start" examines Sonic Youth's melancholic sonics with a narcotic electro lens.
