The past few weeks have been incredibly busy here at Aimless Skylarking. We rolled out our Top Prospects for 2015, 10 artists/bands in all, and then today we finished our 20 Favorite Albums of 2014. Next up is an interview with a Florida based band, and then our favorite songs of the year list. One thing we've neglected during the chaotic swirl of end of the year lists is our Song of the Day feature, but while we have a bit of time, and a bit of Irish whiskey in our glass, we're going to sneak one in because we really want you to hear the French band Mannequins.
The band contacted us about their new LP, 'Worthless', a week or so ago, and we're just now getting to it. Their lead single, 'Yeasterday' has a video and is pretty impressive, but we fell in love with the 2nd track, 'Hang Up Calls'. It's a sing along noisy bit of garage punk and begs to be replayed. We can't wait to listen to the rest of the LP. Stream 'Hang Up Calls' below, it's the Song of the Day!
