The Men’s ‘Campfire Songs’ EP Actually Recorded by a Campfire
Brooklyn quintet shares acoustic version of 'New Moon' song "The Seeds"
The Men’s streak of releasing an album a year may or may not continue in 2014, but the Brooklyn garage quintet is making sure their hungry fans are properly satiated for the time being. This October, the band will release the Campfire Songs EP, a five-song set recorded — you guessed it — around an actual campfire. The outdoor sessions took place while the Men were recording their excellent 2013 album New Moon at an upstate New York cabin and feature two new songs — “Patience” and “Turn Your Tracks” — as well remakes of “The Seeds,” “I Saw Her Face,” and “Water Babies.”
Campfire Songs was originally given away during the band’s tour following New Moon, but this will be its first proper release. The 12-inch vinyl comes with a booklet featuring photos taken by multi-instrumentalist Kevin Faulker, and is due out October 15 via Sacred Bones. Stream “The Seeds” below.
