Sneak Preview: On Tour (December 2006)

Attention Markfive readers!  Now’s your chance to read an exclusive sneak peek of my printed column, On Tour.  This month’s article?  “Five Great Bands You Should Know About”

Jack’s Mannequin – After his time with Something Corporate, lead singer Andrew McMahon started a new side project: Jack’s Mannequin.  The debut album Everything In Transit is in every way an evolution of what his first band did: the lyrics are more thoughtful, the piano is more melodic, and the rhythms are much more complex.  Their song “Dark Blue” occupies the number-one position in my Top 25 Most-Played list, but every song on that album has something to sing about.  You can tell that they’re style is Alt-Rock, but their frequent use of piano and tempos of a slow-song allow them to rise above the typical Alternative scene.

To view the rest of the column, pick up the next issue of the Day Times (tentative release date: Dec. 7, 2006)  or check it out online (the web publish date will be the same as the print one).
