MEN, Talk About Body Album Review


It's impossible to stay still while the infectious, arty, punk-tinged disco house sounds of MEN are echoing clear. An offshoot remix project of feminist electro-punk band Le Tigre, the Brooklyn-based collective capture the energy of a dynamic live performance on their early 2011 release, Talk About Body, heralding great promise too for their forthcoming tour.

'Life's Half Price' opens the effort with a pounding electronic beat and repeated bass riff, before the punk-y guitar riff crunches in and the track builds layer by layer, vocals, synths and all, adding up to a fuzzy and scuzzy, arty-electro synth-pop blend. Their melodies are repetitive but married with infectious danceable grooves and interspersed with melodic guitar and synth interludes.
