Man-Made Objects are a new shoegaze/dream pop band based in Oklahoma City. The band is the latest music project of Grant Provence, who wrote the EP in 2009 while living in Brooklyn. Recorded at Bell Labs by Trent Bell (Flaming Lips, Chainsaw Kittens) and mastered by legendary NYC producer Kramer (Galaxie 500, Sufjan Stevens, Daniel Johnston), the EP released digitally in the Fall of 2010. Kramer called the EP, “Way Excellent.”

Inspired as much by his rural upbringing in Oklahoma as the progressive sounds of experimentalists like Sonic Boom (of Spacemen 3) and sixties’ avant-gardists Silver Apples, Provence is most comfortable when oscillating between the pastoral and the progressive. Simple song-structures and accessible melodies belie the sonic textures that Provence builds with heavily layered guitars awash in reverb. Provence seeks most to create a feeling or mood within the song, reminiscent of bands like Mercury Rev, Spacemen 3, and My Bloody Valentine. The music is both internal and dreamy, yet ambitious and sometimes epic.

Man-Made Objects are currently working on their debut full-length album, expected to be released in 2011.
