Last year’s ‘New Moon’ LP saw noise-grungers The Men heading in more of a countryish pop direction, so it comes as no surprise that they’ve recorded alternate versions of some of those songs in a rustic outdoor setting, including a 12”x12” photo booklet with the EP so you can see all the log cabins and plaid shirts and reel to reel recorders with your own eyes. Seems a bit extravagant for an acoustic EP but it's an undeniably classy touch.
The 12" itself is pretty much what you’d expect, a warm lo-fi slightly Woods-ish strum through a handful of tracks from the aforementioned album, all intimate rustic drones and chiming guitars and casual vocals. The second side is noisier and more weird over the course of its two tracks than the first and so naturally is my preferred side. They’re brand new songs too and so will be of the greatest interest to the die-hards. Particularly liking the mumbly and lengthy out-there raga-ish drone jam of ‘Turn Your Color’ which displays a facet of the band’s indie-psych aesthetic I’ve not encountered before.
