New York City

Man Forever is Kid Millions is John Colpitts — a founding member of Oneida, touring member of Spiritualized and one of the most omnipresent percussive forces in NYC. Under the Man Forever handle, Kid crafts intricate walls of pure percussion — long, rhythmic explorations that swell and pulse in a well-crafted cacophony. 

Man Forever’s new record Ryonen — recorded with contemporary classical ensemble So Percussion — drops today on Thrill Jockey, and he’s passed along this video to give us a brief glimpse into some of his more, well, challenging explorations. We’ll be celebrating the new record every Tuesday this month, with Man Forever-related friends and family spinning records in the lobby at Ace Hotel New York.

Our friends at Ad Hoc stopped by a couple weeks ago, sitting down to discuss the new record with Kid Millions and So Percussion — you can take a look at the interview over at their site

Man Forever dominates the eastern half of these United States from now through the end of June.
