MARKED MEN: Fix My Brain: CD

The Marked Men are hands down, without a doubt, the best band in Texas. This new album is a bit of a departure from the first two, but not in a bad way. It’s much more along the lines of the “She Won’t Know” single released late last year. It’s still the good old Marked Men that we all know and love, with the nice mix of Jeff’s gooey melted-cheese vocals and Mark’s more angular voice. The only real difference here is the absence of the prominent sixteenth-note high hats that have become somewhat of a novelty in garage rock these days. Great production, minimalist artwork, expertly-crafted songs—just go fucking get this, it rules!
