The Men – “Pearly Gates”
New York rock bulldozers the Men have been reliably cranking out a great album every year for the past few years, and the next one, the optimistically titled Tomorrow’s Hits, lands in March. The first album track that the band has shared is “Pearly Gates,” which is six minutes of skronky horns and pounding pianos and serrated bar-rock boogie. It sounds something like the E Street Band if they’d been led by James Chance rather than Bruce Springsteen, if that makes even the tiniest shred of sense, and it kicks ass. Listen below.
Tomorrow’s Hits is out 3/4 on Sacred Bones.
