Hope for men

Hello guys!

Today we launch a new weekly column called "Hope for men". It will be about mannish tunes and lyrics and music with an Adam’s apple if you know what I mean.

Okay, first things first. The column is called after the second LP of one of my favorite bands Pissed Jeans, so let's talk about this album.
On the cover we see two men embracing each other. No homo, even considering the fact that they are both half-naked. This is just a great illustration of a men-to-men relationship, the kind of relationship that guys don’t show in front of women. It’s all about friendship, understanding and care.

The music might sound too noisy (It’s noise-punk after all), but if you can dig through that wall of annoying sound, you will find a lot of tenderness and beauty. Basically this music is a metaphor for men, who seem scruffy and rude on the outside, but are tender and cozy on the inside. Girls, you can learn a lot from this.
Here are the best tracks from this album:

Hope you'll like it
Cheers mates!

Song of the day

Midnight City by M83

Pompeya - Tropical (8/10)

Well, I just like it. A lot)
I like the artwork, i like synths, i like the blues in Sova's voice, i like their facebook page.
I really like that they are trying to keep a little bit of sunshine in the times that aren't really so bright in Moscow and in Russia. I cannot say that the album is one of the best that I've heard in my life. But I can say for sure that it is a well built pop album with nice catchy tunes where blues mixes with funk and drives you to some calm places inside your own head with it's tropical flavours. Definitely give it a try!
