Marilyn Manson has just posted on his website a track called “We’re From America”, the first single from the god-of-you-know-what’s forthcoming album The High End of Low. On the CD Manson reunites with his old guitarist Twiggy Ramirez and the track is a hammering, industrial-tinged rocker reminiscent of the pair’s early work. It also features a lot of lyrics that we probably shouldn’t print here. To me, the whole thing sounds like an angrier, gothier sibling to LCD Soundsystem’s “North American Scum.” But maybe I’m being unduly influenced by the title. Anyway, take a listen and see what you think.
