Marilyn Manson is moving to Williamsburg
Not the biggest fan in the world of Marilyn Manson, but hearing this clip from his new single Heart Shaped Glasses made me a tad intrigued, if do say so myself. If you can get past the ever so tacky and cliched blood fountain as Manson makes out with his new girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood, who happens to be 19 (lets hope that blood is N.A). The xylophone and military snare rolls are topped with a simple, rhythmic, dare I say The Strokes type guitar riff. These qualities are a departure for Manson.
Could he be going all indie rock on us? Manson is a marketing whiz, and knows what sells. In either case this is an album I just might have to check out. "Eat Me, Drink Me" drops June 5th, and look out for Manson on a North side street near you.
