Both Uncut and Q magazine are eagerly awaiting the release of MEN’s debut album ‘Talk About Body.’ With Uncut giving the album 4 stars and declaring it ‘hedonistic dance-pop with brainy-sexy lyrics’ and Q swooning over the band merging ‘irresistible funk with swagger,’ listeners should get ready for an earful.

As Uncut misquotes pioneering feminist Emma Goldman, ‘it’s not a revolution unless you can dance to it.’ ‘Talk About Body’ will be released this spring on IAMSOUND Records.

SALEM Featured In The NY Times
Dec 2010 06

SALEM was featured in the New York Time’s T magazine this weekend in their fashion spread. Take a look at the article here.

Dec 2010 03

The London Evening Standard lists SALEM’s debut ‘King Night’ as one of the Best Albums of 2010. Of the album, the paper says, “harsh, bleak and frequently very beautiful, the blurry electronica and inaudible vocals from these pioneers in the field of witch house sounded special as well as spooky.”

They’ve also chosen The National’s ‘High Violet,’ which PETER KATIS mixed and did additional production on, and Arcade Fire’s ‘The Suburbs,’ which NICK LAUNAY mixed tracks on.

Dec 2010 03

SALEM’s ‘King Night’ was voted #8 in NME’s Top 50 albums of 2010. NME hails it as one of the ‘most visionary albums of 2010.’

SALEM’s single “Frost” is about to take over British airwaves, with it being spun in heavy rotation and soon to make it’s debut on Zane Lowe’s show.

MEN’s first video officially premiered on Stereogum this week. Stereogum says “Their performances are heavier on performance, but this video for MEN’s “Off Our Backs” is pure eye and ear candy. The latter is mostly due to JD Samson’s singsong chorus, which, like Le Tigre’s best chants, worms its way into your brain.”

The band have also announced UK tour dates, set to kick off tonight!

10/29 – Captain’s Rest – Glasgow, UK
10/30 – Stealth, Nottingham, UK
11/2 – Buffalo Bar, Cardiff, UK
11/3 – Brudenell Social Club – Leeds, UK
11/4 – Prince Albert, Brighton, UK
11/5 – It’s In Our Blood @ Electroworks, London, UK
11/6 – Club Brenda @ Kraak Gallery, Manchester, UK
11/11 – The Thekla, Bristol. UK
11/12 – Theater an Ufer, Berlin, Germany
11/13 – Ladyfest @ Garage, London, UK
