One of the most exciting moments as a music fan is when you get deeply into an artist, exhaust their catalog and then just sit there blankly trying to figure out where to go next. If you're a Neil Young & Crazy Horse fan and you've just worn out your copy of Zuma, The Men’s "I Saw Her Face" is going to work out really well for you. The Men often specialize in loud, sometimes brutal, sometimes sludgy rock. This song takes those elements and stretches them out into a calmer, more meandering track that ends in the kind of sloppy catharsis that Crazy Horse perfected and potentially invented. It can be pummeling but that doesn't mean it's not pretty. New Moon is out March 5th on Sacred Bones.
