Tomorrow's Hits - Flying Out

MEN, THE

Tomorrow's Hits

Sacred Bones Records

$25.95

After spending much of 2011 and 2012 on the road, including a trip upstate to write and record New Moon, their fourth full-length in as many years, The Men needed a break. They decided to take the winter of 2012 off to work on new material in Brooklyn. The converted founding member Mark Perros bedroom in Bushwick into a practice space and rehearsed there nearly every day for three months, cutting more than 40 demos. By the end of that winter, The Men had pared that crop of songs down to 13. With their plans to take a break foiled by their own work ethic, they decided to record those songs before New Moon came out. They booked two days at Brooklyns Strange Weather studios, clocked in, and tracked all 13 songs entirely live, even including a horn section.

Eight songs from those sessions made the final cut for The Mens- Tomorrows Hits. This is their first album recorded in a high-end studio and, appropriately, the result is their most high fidelity album to date. That being said, it is still an incredibly straightforward record. Tomorrows Hits is a concise collection of songs that nonetheless expands the bands ever-evolving musical palette. Its full of genre-bending risks, but it reinforces the overarching theme that has come to define its makers: The Men are a great rock band.
