OTD Exclusive: Mad Man Films

By now our love of Mad Man Films is well documented, and even though they've supposedly moved the hell out of Allston, they're still our favorite Nick Cave/Tom Waits freaks. They write evasive melodies and eight minute songs that build but never go prog; like Big Black before them, they are not as good a funk band as they think they are, but make up for it by being really grim and noisy; completely unlike Big Black, their singer can actually -- when he wants, which isn't often -- sing real soul music.

We don't know when this song is coming out or whether it's part of an album or something. We just know it's unreleased and awesome and if you liked "Brotherfucker" then you know what's coming. And that the boys are back in town for yet another greatfugginshow with Ho-Ag, Badman, and Tristan da Cunha at Great Scott.
