Hear New Sound: The Men's "Ex-Dreams"


To anyone who may have been caught off guard by the back-to-garage rock basics approach previewed in the Recommended title track off BUZZSound alumni The Men's forthcoming LP Open Your Heart, a new listen provides ease that the Brooklyn noisemaking quartet isn't ready to ween itself off the chapped hardcore teat that made last year's Leave Home a breakthrough and one of the 25 Best Albums of 2011. "Ex-Dreams" is the closing track off of Open Your Heart. AS isn't sure if other listeners will arrive at a similar conclusion, but once you pass the first two minutes' full-throttle punked out jam session, it becomes apparent that the song's title is somewhat of a cheeky nod to their '80s NYC art-core-homaging roots. Hear The Men's vision of a daydream nation below and look for Open Your Heart in stores on March 6th via Sacred Bones.
