Morning Hype! – Black Manila

This Mornings Hype comes from across seas, South London to be specific, and is brought to us garage psych band Black Manila. At this point I can’t even remember how I stumbled upon these guys over the weekend and I can’t really find much about them other than on YouTube and Facebook, but I couldn’t  stop going back to their videos, especially England, which is a devilishly slow burner of a track coupled with a fantastically edited video. Think the best of Lou Reed’s Velvet Underground touched up with Radio Birdman’s ability to build a song to an explosive crescendo. Pure rock and roll swagger, and it hasn’t sounded this good in a while. Doesn’t seem as though they have a full length out yet, but I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more of these guys. And again, this video clip rules.
