American Men are a future-vibing 3-piece from Glasgow, with a debut release lined up for the brilliant LuckyMe – coming very soon. Consisting of members from Claude Speed, Dananananaykroyd and some other really, really vibrant Scottish rock bands – their sound is a mixture of illuminating vintage synths and super tight live drumming. These American Men are like those ones you see on Venice Beach, sporting side slit Adidas shorts – sun drenched and rich in charisma.
This release comes on double gatefold vinyl, which always feels real nice – you know. Backed with some pretty awesome remix work from Ikonika & Optimum (big collab), Falty DL (American garage specialist), Machine Drum (long time, hard working super dude behind the recently enjoyed Sepalcure) and Hudson Mohawke (whose track here is way good).
“Thanks so much for this. I’ve been looking forward to them putting something out ever since hearing them on Hud Mo’s mix for Mary Anne Hobbs.” Ben UFO (Hessle Audio)
“Fuck you this is beautiful… Frank Zappa and Arthur C Clarkeʼs love child.” Falty DL, Planet Mu
“This record is the king beast of the year! Excellent!” Mamiko Motto, Kindred Spirits
