The Men: New Moon

Hearing the lap steel and acoustic guitar on some of these jams, it's easy to forget that four years and four albums ago, these Brooklynites were face-melting noise punks. New Moon reminds you that the Men can go pretty much anywhere they please, from pogo-worthy explosions ("Electric") and instrumental backwoods bum-outs ("High and Lonesome") to old-school psychedelic blowouts (all eight glorious minutes of "Supermoon").
