Manor Animals are an Athens supergroup of sorts, made up of the five residents of The Bruce Manor house on West Union Street in Athens. Tim Race (Russenorsk), Zach Inscho (Seascapes, Russenorsk), Alex Eiler (She Bears), Josh Landis (In Silent Movies), and Mike Jones (also of In Silent Movies) make up a group that despite their involvement in many other projects definitely has it own sound. These songs rock and their is a depth to their live shows that comes from being in a band with everyone you live in a house with. Good stuff. They just finished an EP that I am hoping to get a hold of soon.
