Received a 7.5 rating from Pitchfork. Solo pop explorations from MARK RYAN of THE MARKED MEN. Around the time Denton, TX legends Marked Men were entering into their current state of semi- hibernation, co-singer/songwriter/ guitarist Mark Ryan decided he wanted to go in a slightly different direction for his next project, with recordings handled mostly by himself, and a fluid lineup of musicians to back him live. After an extremely well received 7-inch on Dirtnap (released before the live version of the band had played a single show), MIND SPIDERS follow it up with a full length that doesn't begin to disappoint. Intelligent, highly crafted songwriting with lots of twists and turns, meticulously recorded at home with Mark himself playing most of the instruments. Live version of the band features members of BAD SPORTS, HIGH TENSION WIRES, UPTOWN BUMS, MARKED MEN, and others. Includes a download.
