Get Your Mannequin Men Stream On Right Now

The Chicago quartet's latest, rock-filled self-titled album is streaming in its entirety over at AOL's Spinner site, which compares them to Superchunk and Whiskeytown.

While you ponder the validity of those comparisons, we'll point you toward album highlights "Hobby Girl" and "Gonna Forget About Me" as more melodic, contemplative efforts from a band formerly known for crazy shenanigans. We've have more Mannequin Men action later this week, in the form of an interview with frontman Kevin Richard. The band also just announced a release show for Mannequin Men on Dec. 4 at The Hideout. Details here.

Mannequin Men is out tomorrow.
