Here is the second track from The Men’s upcoming long player Drift, and it stands in sharp contrast to the synth-driven dance floor stomper Maybe I’m Crazy .

This time, Rose on Top of the World is much more akin to a pastoral, paisley filled, psychedelic jam that is closer to the Silver Jews than MinistryThe Men were formed in 2008, in Brooklyn, NY. Since then, they’ve released 5 LPs, 6 EPs, and 8 tapes. They’ve played basements, dive bars, theaters, parking lots, big festivals, small festivals, and a boat. A lot of different people have come in out of this band over the years. They’re still ridin’ on.

The great thing is that, in it’s own way, it is just as good. Vocalist and guitarist Nick Chiericozzi said that the track, “came out of a Spanish guitar lick, a radar weather map, a poem and maybe a few other things. It has a good title; one that creates a definite mental image but could really be about anything.”

From ‘Drift,’ out March 2, 2018 on Sacred Bones Records.
