With three weeks until the release of their new acoustic EP Campfire Songs, The Men have unveiled one of the EP’s two brand new tracks. Created around a crackling log fire during downtime while recording their recent LP New Moon, this rough, charming new five-track EP is a must for fans of the NY band.
To be released on October 15th on Sacred Bones, the 12” EP comes with a 12-page photo book 11.5″ × 11.5″ insert featuring never before seen black & white photographs shot by their bassist/ and lap-steel player, Kevin Faulkner, during the Big Indian sessions.
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.
1. I Saw Her Face
