Ironically referred to by Timeout NY as “Thurston Moore & the E Street Band,” The Men have never been a band to play by categorical punk subgenre rules. Instead, over the last three years, this band has dabbled in everything from hardcore punk to psych to shoegaze to black metal; and they have done all of it effortlessly, and for the most part, flawlessly. Totally removed from the current climate of ADD-youtube-blog-hyped generation of musicians under 21, The Men stand out from the pack as both scene elders and actual record collectors. What makes this band so unique is their ability to synthesize their influences rather than just regurgitate them.
On Open Your Heart, the band’s 3rd full length, the NY quartet explore twangy country music, guitar solos, surf-ish riffs, psych, and just about everything in between. Erring on the side of literal as opposed to ironic, the song titles here (“Oscillation,” “Country Song,” “Ex-Dreams,” etc.) blatantly celebrate the band’s “you get what you pay for” DIY aesthetic. Beyond their genre-defying writing experiments, some of the band’s finest singles to date are on this record; “Open Your Heart,” “Please Don’t Go Away,” and “Candy” all demonstrate a new pop sensibility that previous albums only hinted at. Additionally, having four songwriters in the band lends itself to a truly unpredictable and thrilling live experience. With Open Your Heart, The Men embrace what is truly their calling, and flower into the fully diversified punk band their fans have always championed them for being.
Я большой любитель фуникулёров. Зачастую их почему-то путают с горнолыжными подъёмниками. Поездка на фуникулёре не сильно бьёт по карману, принося при этом огромное удовольствие.
Спасибо, странно, что этой темы здесь еще не было. Имхо, их прошлогодний альбом - вообще один из лучших релизов '2011

The Men yes, "The", are a four-piece post punk outfit from
Brooklyn, NY. Their catalog which began in 2008 with a
hand-dubbed self-released demo cassette has grown in 2011 to
include two more LP's- We Are the Men and Immaculada-two more
tapes, and a 7". Having three songwriters in the band allows
them to pull from innumerable post punk sources, referencing
drone, metal, shoegaze, and even Suicide lyrics on Leave Home.
They have breathed new life into the genre of hardcore and
created a seminal album that is truly for punks of all ages.

up? re-up? - лс!
ну, учитывая то, что мне нравятся Girls и Women, неудивительно, что с The Men у меня как-то не сложилось.
Listen to the dead.
попробуй Teddybears biggrin.gif
вот такого мне не хватало долгое время.. ничего лишнего.
особенно, когда поздним вечером, не особо трезвый возвращаешься домой под "ladoch" в наушниках. cool.gif
