Maybe you guys remember Money Mark as the guy who brought the retro-riffing keys to Check Your Head and Ill Communication as the unofficial fourth Beastie Boy. This year sees the release of his fourth full-length, and it’s a gear shift, showing the tender underbelly to Mark’s otherwise funky compositions. This premiere is a good example of the sincere Money, all acoustic strums and acoustic piano.
And in case you missed it a few weeks back, here’s another from the record, drawing on those Check Your Head keys. No Average White Band here.
Brand New By Tomorrow is out 2/27/07 on Brushfire.
