CROSS-POLLINATION CCLXXXIII - TUES MAY 11TH - 7:30-10 PM
JAY MANKIND
THE CANON LOGIC

Jay Mankind loves you and he will tell you so. His songs are chock full of witty, well-worded aphorisms of adoration blended with guitar adages that will cause both a bop of the knee and a sway of the shoulders. Weilding a voice that defies easy comparison, Jay has a rare ability to clearly communicate his subjects. The listener understands each word, if not their complete intent. Major in tonality, and optimistic in tone, Jay's songs often share big ideas dressed in simple garb. A lightning rod of melody, Jay's songs have a tendancy to bounce around in your mind for long periods of time. On stage, Jay is engaging and entertaining matching his songs with casual and often comical audience interaction.

Having recently formed The Jay Mankind Pop-estra, Jay's songs are now painted with a broad sonic palette featuring horns, clarinet, pianos, glockenspiel, banjo and anything else that can be found lying around the rehearsal space. It's been described as a blend of The Decemberists, Cake and The Buddha.

"Their upbeat songs and emphasis on vocal harmony exudes a Brian Wilson in Williamsburg vibe....If you have a penchant for getting songs stuck in your head and liking it, don't miss this show."
-CMJ Staff Blog

"Jam packed with layers upon layers of harmony, melody and everything in between, [debut album] FM Arcade is a collection of anthemic piano driven indie-pop songs."
-Tuneage

"Vocal harmonies and guitar hooks mix old and new with Brooklyn's The Canon Logic."
