Arriving November 9th is the new album from the experimental pop/rockers The Woolly Mammoths.

They continue with the sweeping melody of the title song "C I T Y Z E N" and the Devo-like beats of "2manycars." Woolly Mammoths find the perfect dance groove with "Buttons (Whatever You Want)," while "1st Of The Month" displays a new wave, eighties post-punk sound that is hard to find in today's glossed over pop music world. The album finishes with the steady electronic rock vibe of "Korea" and the avante garde soundscapes of "Yr Trying 2 Hard."
