A quick Money Mark refresher: He was instrumental, literally and figuratively, on Beastie Boys albums like Check Your Head, Ill Communication, Hello Nasty, and the oh, so groovy The In Sound From Way Out. He also played on a couple Beck records, Blackalicious and the first Handsome Boy Modeling School. Money Mark’s always good for a laid-back, soulful groove and that sounds like what we’re in for on this, his seventh, solo release. Brand New By Tomorrow represents Mark’s efforts at dealing with and documenting a break-up head on. Official Money Mark literature says that this first single is one of the more upbeat, hopeful songs on the album (which I have yet to hear in its entirety), so if you’re in need of soothing salve for your heartache drop this one on the ol’ hi-fi.
