Mannequin Men - s/t

About three years ago, I had the chance to see Chicago's Mannequin Men play at the FYF (back when it was still manageable and being held in Echo Park, at that). They were one of the more obscure bands forced to play an early afternoon set to a half-full Echoplex, but nonetheless turned out to be one of the better bands to perform that weekend. I assumed I'd never hear from them again.

As it turns out, however, Mannequin Men have gotten even better, and they released one of 2011's most worthwhile rock albums. I'd hate for this group to disappear without much attention outside of their home base, so give 'em a shot if you're into sad slobby men, beer, and loneliness. Review and samples linked below...
