MEN, the Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective consists of core members JD Samson (Le Tigre) Michael O’Neill (Ladybug Transistor) and Tami Hart, are set to release their debut album Talk About Body on Monday 31st January on IAMSOUND.

The group began in 2007 with the DJ/production/remix team of Le Tigre members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. With Le Tigre on hiatus, when the duo began to write new songs, it made sense to merge their efforts with JD’s other new project Hirsute. JD and Hirsute members Michael and Ginger now comprise the core of MEN, with Johanna and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants and producers. The band focus on the energy of live performance and radical potential of dance music. Their music speaks of issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise and the demand for liberties through lyrical content and an inventive, high energy stage show.

Kicking off with the lyrically-charged “Life’s Half Price,” Talk About Body showcases the band’s uncanny ability to blend multiple influences, from the funky electronic of “Make It Reverse” to the guitar-laden dancefloor funk of “Boom Boom Boom,” all the while maintaining the lyrical bite that has made MEN such an exciting proposition. The album also features debut single “Credit Card Babies” and second single “Off Our Backs” – an addictive slice of electro-pop brilliance, a sure-fire, 21st century pop anthem – with its soaraway chorus (“I’m/A tease/We’re flipping can’t you see”) and instantly memorable melody.

Coupled with an explosive live show, MEN look set to take 2011 by storm.
