Mannequin Men 'Sally'

Chicago's Mannequin Men are finishing up their third album following 2009's 'Lose Your Illusion, Too' (Flameshovel). In the interim while waiting for its release is track "Sally" accompanied by Jack Oblivion and the Tearjerkers "The Lone Ranger of Love" as part of the Scion A/V single series. Drawing from an amalgamation of influences Mannequin Men's songs assemble sounds from The Clean, Neil Young and Wipers to name a few and create something unmistakably their own. "Hobby Girl" (Hozac/2010) sounds like The Replacements covering Television Personalities and is one of their finest songs to date, further showing what we might expect from the new record. This is music lovingly made for record nerds by record nerds who unabashedly lay bare their influences and sound like they have a great time doing it. And, if you want to know how good it feels to be caning it down the motorway with Mannequin Men blasting out of the stereo - you'll just have to try it and see.
