Product Description

Product Description

The Men s last album received Best New Music from Pitchfork. Initial Cargo Collective stores will get a free bonus CD Campfire Songs (5 previously unreleased acoustic album tracks) with their orders only while stocks last. With their fourth full-length album to be released in as many years, The Men proudly present the sweeping New Moon, the most intensely personal and immersive installment yet. Never content to draw on the same methods twice, nor to recline under the heel of expectation, The Men quit the city in early 2012 to head for Big Indian, NY - transforming a remote Catskills locale into a full-fledged stray-dog studio home. Entering with only the most skeletal sketches, the house was selected as an incubator for its technical limitations. Familiar faces remain, the core of guitarists Nick Chiericozzi and Mark Perro, with drummer Rich Samis all returning from last year s much-acclaimed Open Your Heart. However, inroads have since been made to previously unreachable trails, as close friend and producer Ben Greenberg (Pygmy Shrews, Hubble, Zs) officially joins the ranks as bassist on paper, and full-bore compositional partner in practice. In tandem, wayward brother Kevin Faulkner occupies his most substantial sphere to date, dreaming aloud on lap steel guitar. The Men s oft-cited commitment to their no-one-is-frontman maxim surely insists itself all the more emphatically here... so much so that it practically creates a new band in the process. This smiling observance induces a fresh fluidity amongst their roles and instrumentation, incorporating at various junctures piano, mandolin, harmonica, four-part vocal harmonies and even no-input harsh noise. New Moon is simultaneously an expansion of palette and a contraction of focus, hedged with as much leaden dirge and ecstatic abandon, as it is genuine saccharine steel-string levity and an ever-tightening, no apologies pop concision. Summarily, it is a love letter devoted in bowed humility to the grand continuum, exposing the hoax of the great divide. Allegiances to the glowing patinas of Detroit and San Francisco, New York and Nashville all abound, but nostalgia is not her name. The band s clear ethos is to revisit but never retread. Press by In-House : This will be everywhere!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling 4 Mar 2013
By Syriat TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Garage rock, when it is done well, is a head down, foot stomping wall of noise. It isn't done very well much these days - however this fourth offering from The Men is a great exception. Its wailing, howling guitars, harmonica and drums on tracks like Without a Face, I Saw Her Face and The Brass is just a joy. Its reminiscent of Husker Du in its simple tracks and vocal delivery. Its just so loud and abrasive you have to love it.

There are some quieter numbers. Indeed when you listen to the piano and acoustics of the opening track, appropriately named, Open the Door you will wonder if you were listening to a different album - it sounds like a younger Travelling Wilburies. However, the overall tone is noise and its quite thrilling. Half Angel and Half Light sounds like a Neil Young and Crazy Horse number sped up and delivered with all the feeling those old warhorses have.

This is a great rock album. Its going to be up there at the end of the year as one of the best rock albums of the year. Its so blissfully simple, noisy and fun that its a joyful listen. It reminds you that simple rock n roll can be one of the best things in life to listen to.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Men's brand of abrasive, shoegazy noise-rock gets countrified 5 Mar 2013
By Jack Tripper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Over their first three albums (the last two especially), The Men have proven they can perfectly fuse elements of punk-rock, shoegaze, and Sonic Youth-type noise-rock, creating a rather unique sound that's aggressive and hardcore yet dreamy and blissed-out at the same time. Those qualities are all present on 'New Moon,' but in slightly more laid-back form in general, with a heavy injection of country and folk that gives it more of a classic-rock, "Americana" vibe.

The overall sound here is one I'm tempted to describe as Dinosaur Jr. covering Neil Young & Crazy Horse, but that would sell the album more than a little short, although the latter is an obvious influence here as evidenced by the Young-esque, sloppily sublime noodling jams of both "I Saw Her Face" and the harmonica-laden "Bird Song." But there's a lot more going on here, such as the beautiful acoustic twang of "Open the Door" and "High and Lonesome," as well as the fuzzed-out walls of guitars on songs like the ferocious punk of "The Brass" and the epic, tripped-out headphone-journey closer, "Supermoon," with its insane intertwining guitar histrionics and drums that sound like they're being battered into the ground.

While there are no real negatives here, the album doesn't really have quite the intense thrills of 'Open Your Heart.' But it's more than made up for by the consistently stellar quality and the diverse range on display--musically, lyrically, and emotionally. It may not reach the same genre-defying heights as their last album, but it does further cement The Men's status of one of this decade's premier noisy garage-rockers, and it's amazing to me that a band can put out four albums in as many years while still sounding entirely fresh and original each time out. And I have a pretty strong feeling this trend will continue for the foreseeable future.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2013's "Celebration Rock" 1 April 2013
By J. Vollmer - Published on Amazon.com
Great song writing. Incredible diversity. Best album of the year to this date. Sounds like Japandroids mixed with Neil Young.

Wow! The Men really changed their sound. evolving? Maybe. They even have a country song on the record. This is not my favorite Men record, I miss the loud guitars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Direction for a Great New American Band 1 April 2013
By Conrad Nystrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Shades of Springsteen and Dylan collide with the Touch and Go / Matador catalog...These guys keep getting better, moving beyond niche respectability and into the public consciousness....I dare anyone to not be able to count this as one of the great ROCK albums of the year. The quieter country moments are gorgeous with a gentle ambience perhaps captured by the house they recorded the album in upstate New York. The natural sound of the room exists on the parts that breathe and expand...the majority here resounds with a mature respectability which may not be mistaken for dullness, but improved songwriting; the loud thrashing side of The Men rears its welcome head in the album's last third with "The Brass" and "Electric" providing the best one-two knockout punch.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Men are going Crazy (Horse) 15 Mar 2013
By jbcmusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
Yet another shift in direction for this Brooklyn band, this time into roots rock territory. Lest you think they have gone completely Crazy Horse, they still know how to turn up the amps and combine straight up rock with some fuzzed out punk. I can't wait to get my hands on the limited edition vinyl version of this baby.
