MP3: Conveyor – “Mane”

Conveyor are a band that we here at Beats Per Minute have been enjoying for a little while now, and we’ve been doing our best to encourage you to engage in that enjoyment. It’s certainly not too late to jump on the Conveyor bandwagon; they have yet to release a full length album, but speaking as someone who saw them play three times at SXSW, I can guarantee that it’s going to be brilliant.

The new single from the New York quartet is called “Mane,” and it’s a sprightly and strangely humorous song that shows the another side of this multi-faceted band to those songs you may have heard from them before, such as “Mukraker.” Or, as the press release describes it, “The song is a would’ve/could’ve/should’ve embrace of lost
love over a sub-Saharan carousel of acoustic rounds.”

The song comes out on May 15th on 7″ single with a b-side called “Maine.” Confusing? No, it’s quirky. Or maybe it is just supposed to be confusing. Either way, you can grab the a-side for free below, and pre-order the physical release right now from Gold Robot Records.
