Video Premiere: Phil Manley’s “Make Good Choices”

Phil Manley: Life CoachThis week’s video premiere features slowly scrolling script, crashing waves, and a sunset — all scored to the raucous sound of an acoustic firestorm from Phil Manley. Manley is known for his work as guitarist of DC rock band Trans Am, as well as production on records by bands like Mi Ami and Wooden Shjips.

As the video indicates, Manley isn’t taking the Tony Williams-esque name of his debut solo album too seriously. Life Coach is due 1/25/11 on Thrill Jockey and features tunes composed, performed, and recorded entirely by Manley.
