The Men - "The Seeds (Acoustic) by Sacred Bones Records published on 2013/08/19 22:33:46 +0000 While holed up in a house in upstate NY , The Men took full advantage of their rural surroundings, in-house studio, and lack of recording timelines and obligations. They tracked over twenty-five songs. On top of that they also managed to record five songs acoustically, while sitting around a campfire outside the house. Vinyl version comes with a 12-page photo book 11.5" × 11.5" insert featuring never before seen black & white photographs shot by their bassist/photographer Kevin Faulkner during the Big Indian sessions. Campfire Songs is the band’s second release this year, and their fifth in the past four years. To say this band is prolific is an understatement; they are teeming, borderline prodigal even. Two of these acoustic jams are alternate takes from the album, “I Saw Her Face” and “The Seeds”. The plugged-in version of “Water Babies” appeared on the b-side of their 7" from January, “Patience” and “Turn Your Color” are two entirely new beautiful tracks that highlight this band’s ability to be as gentle as they are commanding.
