The Men are sharing the final single from their upcoming LP, Drift before its release on March 2.

Killed Someone harks back to the Leave Home or Open Your Heart era of the band with a breakneck pace and the huge fuzzed-out riffs that put that band on the map to begin with.

Really looking forward to this album…

 

More From The Men

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.

 

We’re hugely looking forward to the release of Drift, the new album from The Men, which is out on the 2nd March via Sacred Bones.

The band have shared the album’s opener, Maybe I’m Crazy a wired, pulsating, synth-driven rocker complete with wonky sax at the end – it’s a cracker.

 

The Men – Crime

The Men are back in action for their first album since 2014’s Tomorrow’s Hits. Devil Music is a deliberate return to the The Men’s noisy punk roots, and like those early recordings, it’s being self-released on the band’s own We Are The Men Records.

Stream the raw two-minute single Crime below.

 

Round Up Time Again

A few very choice tunes have come our way recently and which for one reason or another we’ve been slow to post them.

So here is a quick and dirty round up of some of them!

First up the very welcome return of the wonderful Pink Mountaintops and the first taste from their forthcoming album Get Back. We also have the brilliant Bass Drum Of Death and new single Black Don’t Glow, and very much in a similar vein we have more sonic mayhem from NØMADS.

We also have new tracks from two of our favourite songwriters; Richard Buckner in the form of Gauzy Dress In The Sun from the forthcoming expanded reissue of Bloomed and Chad VanGaalen’s Where Are You? from his new long player Shrink Dust. We have the spaced out punk of The Ketamines and the much anticipated new single from The Men, and Magic Bones’ excellent ode to Aussie punk rock, Round The Block.

Rounding off our rounding up are a track from the Woolen Men’s latest EP Quick Trips, and from Those Darlins, Why Can’t I,  one of the standout tracks from last year’s excellent Blur The Line album. Finally Let’s Wrestle’s new album is garnering lots of positive column inches and you can hear just why with Rain Ruins Revolution – witty, sarcastic indie rock at its best.

Perhaps unusually, this year seemed a better one for albums rather than individual tracks with some fabulous releases over the past twelve months. There were many contenders for our end of year list, but here, after much deliberation, is Part One of our favourites of 2013.

The Men will follow up the release of their excellent New Moon long player with an acoustic EP called Campfire Songs, recorded (you guessed it) around a campfire.

This is the six minute, spaced out drone of Turn Your Color.

It is out on the 15th October via Sacred Bones.

MM Shorts 354: Sacred Bones Record Store Day Compilation

Sacred Bones is a fantastic record label and this Record Store Day (20th April) they will release a limited-edition (1,000 copies only) of a vinyl compilation, Todo Muere Vol. 3.

It includes a plethora of MM faves including Moon Duo, Zola Jesus, Holydrug Couple, Wymond Miles, Case Studies and this the sampler’s opening track, B Minor, a fuzzed up special courtesy of the Men.

Videos of the Day

Today’s videos are from our favourite southern fried country rockers The Futurebirds, Colleen Green as a cabbie in her new video for Taxi Driver, indie psych-rockers TOY’s video for latest single Heart Skips A Beat, and a 1990s VHS inspired video from The Men for I Saw Her Face, one of the moodier tracks from excellent new album New Moon.
