Packaging: CD Regular

A college radio hit, Manos was characterized as indiepop or indie rock or "alternative," but also had a touch of art rock, folk, emo, math rock, postrock, even jazz, nearing the same spiritual space as '90s bands like Unrest, Sebadoh, and Versus. Gates told our zine (chickfactor) in 1993 what kind of record she wanted to make: She wanted it to be "really magical-the way the first Verlaines record is or a Replacements record-things that you can put on when you feel horrible." Named after a misheard Jesus Lizard lyric, Manos is just that: It sounds like smoky venues and dance parties at punk houses: woozy, tight, fraught, wrought, tense, intense, swoony, breathy, fast, worldly/weary-sophisticated and primitive, stressful and soothing.
