The Men, “Pearly Gates”

The Men live at Pitchfork Music Festival

The Men don’t waste any time with formalities in the first single from their upcoming album Tomorrow’s Hits. They slip into full-on hootenanny mode instead, setting Dylan-esque wails against a reckless rhythm section, heated horns and runaway riffs. Not a bad way to start the day so long as you weren’t hoping to ease into things safely and soundly.

‘Tomorrow’s Hits’ is due out March 4th through Sacred Bones.
