I will discuss a holographic model whose low-energy physics may be used to build a marginal Fermi liquid. The model has several interesting features, including (i.) it is embedded in string theory and we possess a Lagrangian description of the field theory, (ii.) it exhibits a first-order transition between the non-Fermi liquid phase and a normal Fermi liquid phase, and (iii.) the model involves a lattice of heavy defects interacting with a sea of propagating fields.
