Fear of Men are probably this blog’s favourite new band of 2011. They’ve just put together a new set of demos, had them committed to cassette and have them up for sale. They’re called the Alice Munro demos and the video for Doldrums from the release can be seen above. There have been enough words written about Fear of Men elsewhere on these pages, but here are a few more that you can take your pick from: wonderful, excellent, beautiful, dreamy, excellence, enchanting, awe-inspiring, sublime. In truth, that handful of superlatives don’t even come close, either.
The cassette can be bought here: http://fearofmen.bigcartel.com/product/alice-munro-demos-cassette-tape-pre-order
Their last one sold out in about 2 hours. You have been warned.
