The Men are an amalgam of '90s underground rock. You can hear elements of Touch & Go Records, Sonic Youth, grunge, Dinosaur Jr., yadda yadda yadda in their scuzzy racket. The Brooklyn band blends pedal-meets-metal drive and sludge-blues raucousness. But the quartet pulled the rug out from under fans with its latest for Sacred Bones, New Moon, which features more twang than bang. Fuzz must be the envy of all these bands, as its name kind of sums up the entire genre succintly.
