For most of the 2000s, pianist and singer/songwriter Andrew McMahon fronted the alt-rock group Something Corporate before segueing into a poppy solo project titled Jack's Mannequin, which featured guest appearances by many of his talented musician friends. In 2013, he released his first album under his own surname, The Pop Underground. Maintaining his usual warm, upbeat vibe, this was the first of McMahon's records to rely predominantly on electronics and synthesizers. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
