Mannequin Men discuss upcoming album

Local rockers Mannequin Men are set to release their third full-length later this summer. Some critics have pointed out that the new songs bring a country flavor to the garage rock sound the band in known for. Mannequin Men say it’s a hint of twang that runs in the same vein as Neil Young and The Rolling Stones.

Kevin, Miles, Seth and Ethan join Jesse Menendez on Vocalo’s MusicVox to debut new music, talk about the new record and explain why friendship and love of music supersede technical skills.
