Manic with the Manson Family Picnic

My first impressions from NYC's Manson Family Picnic were these:
1. Adorable.
2. What's with their name?
3. Where have you been all this time?

The five piece band induces true smiles (that come from within) with a unique combination of folk, pop, psychedelics, jazz and even punk. There's more than a little madness involved, expressed in genuine enthusiasm, while maintaining a thorny hold on reality.

"Do you ever feel like you’re crazy? I do. Do you ever feel like someone’s watching you?”, ask the opening lines in "The Mistakes". Sometimes it's fun to be crazy.

Check out Manson Family Picnic on their website, MySpace and Facebook for streamable tracks and gig updates. Get their debut EP on CDBaby.
