Here is the second track from The Men’s upcoming long player Drift, and it stands in sharp contrast to the synth-driven dancefloor stomper Maybe I’m Crazy which we shared here.
This time, Rose on Top of the World is much more akin to a pastoral, paisley filled, psychedelic jam that is closer to the Silver Jews than Ministry.
The great thing is that, in it’s own way, it is just as good. Vocalist and guitarist Nick Chiericozzi said that the track, “came out of a Spanish guitar lick, a radar weather map, a poem and maybe a few other things. It has a good title; one that creates a definite mental image but could really be about anything.”
So spin it below. It’s a gem.
