Up-and-coming Brooklyn fuzz-rockers The Men are set to release their new album, Open Your Heart, via Sacred Bones Records on March 6th. Two days later, they’ll play an early show at Strange Matter in Richmond. Here’s a taste of what you might hear; it’s the title track from the new album, courtesy of NPR.
Listening to this cut, it’s hard not to hear the influence of the 1-2-uppercut of Hot Snakes’ Automatic Midnight with its hard-hitting mix of punk rock and surf guitar riffs. Between this and the new Cloud Nothings album, is it too soon to call 2012 “The Year of the Guitar”?
THURSDAY, MARCH 8 (EARLY SHOW)
THE MEN, LOST TRIBE, & HOAX HUNTERS
DOORS 6 PM/MUSIC 7PM
