New York quartet the Men have made a short career out of boldly blending disparate genres and subverting various musical styles within their raucous, unrestrained material. Over the course of three full-lengths and countless cassettes and singles, the young group seamlessly bounces from black metal to country to psych and surf rock, refusing to be pinned down by any particular classification while audaciously defying expectations. They have had a strict DIY aesthetic from the start, self-releasing much of their music until the buzz started to build, and signing to Sacred Bones Records did little to dampen things. With Buildings and Stereo Confusion. 18+.
