About Use Your Delusion. This is Honus Honus’ first-ever solo effort, released in November of 2016, a hodgepodge of dizzying synths, quirky vocals, and genre overload. The album was a way for Kattner to explore new sounds and musical dimensions unknown to him with his previous project, Man Man. Here, Kattner jumps through various hoops to cultivate 13 whimsical, disorienting pop tracks. His goal was pure dystopian pop inspired by Los Angeles. Use Your Delusion Q&A.

Honus Honus (Ryan Kattner) is probably best known for being the charismatic voice and piano smasher of the carnival-esque Philly band, Man Man. Man Man’s music is an exercise in orchestrated chaos, and much of what keeps that chaos together is Honus Honus’ distinct vocal style – a mix of hoarse shouting and mournful crooning. His piano playing is equally important – it has a punk aggression crossed with a subtle shade of melancholy. At its best, Use Your Delusion has moments of brilliance and oddball goodness. Vampires in the Valley and The Stripper Has No Navel open the album as a strong pair, and probably sound the most similar to Honus’ Man Man sound. Heavy Jesus has a chorus begging to be sung with the windows down while driving the 405. Each track is constantly introducing a new set of synth textures that are all firing at once.

Los Angeles-based Ryan Kattner has reinvented himself with his new solo project Honus Honus and fueled his debut LP with the chaos of LA. Use Your Delusion is a hodgepodge of dizzying synths, quirky vocals, and genre overload.
