A quartet hailing from Chapel Hill, NC, the Kingsbury Manx make music in the classic English pop tradition. On its self-titled debut, the band seamlessly blends its home country's indie rock trappings with overseas influences. The Kingsbury Manx is the aural equivalent of a cozy winter fire, with English flavors cloaked in warm, humming organs, acoustic guitars, and tender melodies. It's an unassuming, musically whimsical, minor triumph. Throughout, the band spins quaint melodies that date back to the days when the concept record was the ultimate test of a group's possibilities.
Release Notes: It has been four long years since we last heard from The Kingsbury Manx. But if the strength of this new batch of songs is any indication, it has been well worth the wait. At the end of 2005, things were good in Manxville.
The Kingsbury Manx are an American indie rock group from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The original members of The Kingsbury Manx met in middle school. They then attended different colleges and reunited during the summer months to play and record together. One of their demos caught the ear of Chicago-based label Overcoat Recordings, who issued their debut self-titled album in 2000.
The Kingsbury Manx do not craft songs that will stun you with their ingenuity and proficiency. Rather, the album recalls a tranquil mountain lake scene: they're peaceful and beautiful, sometimes even unique, but they so resemble other similar scenes that they seem a bit common. Songs like "Pageant Square" and "Piss Diary" offer a pronounced soft folk vibe that is both gorgeous and soothing in its simplicity. This isn't meant in the pejorative John Teshian sense, but instead in the sense that the Kingsbury Manx capture the broad, gentle tones inherent to that much maligned genre and meld them with mild folk instrumentation and mentality. The effect of this hybrid isn't quite stunning, but makes for a peaceful listen that's active and engaging enough to hold attention.
The Kingsbury Manx was released by the label in 2000 to so little fanfare (failing to offer any information about the band or the recording) that it ended up creating a small amount of mystery. Managing to stay independent from any particular scene, the band cultivated a sound simultaneously derivative and original. Let You Down followed in 2001. Its Japanese counterpart release included two bonus tracks, "Dirt and Grime" and "My Shaky Hand. In support of the Afternoon Owls EP, which arrived in fall 2003, the Kingsbury Manx toured with the Sea and Cake. In 2004, the Kingsbury Manx started working on tunes for their next album at their practice space (Pine Manor) in Chapel Hill. They traveled up to Michigan to record the tunes at the Key Club studios and, in early 2005, left longtime label Overcoat Recordings to sign with local North Carolina label Yep Roc Records.
