[audio:] Man/Miracle – “Hot Sprawl”

Man/Miracle played a great set the other night at the Rickshaw Stop, and their debut full length The Shape of Things is an infectious collection of nervy songs recommended especially for fans of Talking Heads, The Feelies, and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

This Saturday (8pm, $5), the band celebrates the new CD’s release at Oakland’s LoBot Gallery, with Golden Gram and Quinn. Non-Bay Areans: their MySpace page announces plans to tour in the first few months of 2010.
