Mannequin Men - Fresh Rot

Mannequin Men are a rowdy, raucous and utterly infectious garage-rock band that likes to write and record albums in a single, unholy day of productivity. That approach is what led to their second full-length album Fresh Rot. They rock directly, enthusiastically and hard in way that way that recalls simpler times without resorting to fashionable irony or needless post-modernism. Basically, they are like The Dandy Warhols, or The Hives maybe, without the quotation marks and with much better hooks.

Songs like "Grapefruit" and "Pigpen" are ripe with the sort of hyperactive emotions and power that could fuel a thousand teenagers jumping on a thousand beds playing thousands of air guitar chords. Fittingly, the band has a reputation for glorious drunk live shows. You can see them for yourself when they come to your town to promote Fresh Rot, which comes out on September 18th via Flameshovel. Listen to the four tracks at the top of the post to get an idea of what you're in for.
