We liked Man Mantis’s synthy Sea Ambulance EP A LOT. Then we loved his full length record Cities Without Houses even more, and we were super excited to see what would come of his ambitious Kickstarter campaign that aimed to fund a (much warranted) limited edition vinyl release. Unfortunately as these things sometimes sway for some reasons more frustrating and perplexing than others, he didn’t reach the numbers to fund that project. BUT you can still donate over on his bandcamp page, knowing the funds are going directly into his piggy bank. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if we end up seeing that vinyl within the next year or two with just a little help from his friends.
Check out a brand new Man Mantis track, a remix of “Over The Rainbow.” Always a coy boy, he says of the track, “The dreams I dare to dream probably shouldn’t come true, to be honest.” Decide for yourself as you stream the tubular-belled joint below and download after the skip.[audio:http://potholesinmyblog.flywheelsites.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Over-the-Rainbow-Remix.mp3|titles=Over the Rainbow (Remix)]
