Man Forever is Oneida drummer Kid Millions (aka John Colpitts) working out his manic percussion ambitions within a maximalist-minimalist context. On 2013’s Pansophical Cataract, Man Forever’s penchant for repetition and nearly superhuman endurance propels the music into the drum kit equivalent of a Rhys Chatham guitarmy deployment; powerful and heady stuff. This year’s Play What They Want diverts wildly from that record, with guest spots from avant-garde queen Laurie Anderson, deft harpist Mary Lattimore, Trans Am guitarist Phil Manley, and indie-rock fixtures Yo La Tengo. Percussion is used much more sparsely in service of vocal-centric songs of arty and dainty melodiousness. It’s an unexpected departure that often pays serious dividends.
