[Introducing] Men’s Adventures: Oddly profound cliche laden soft rock

Men's Adventures

Who: Jimmy Casson & Alfie Smith

Where: London

Why We Care: Cliches are a bit of a strange one. If you’re unaware of how heavily you’re leaning on them -step forward Mumford- they’re unimaginably awful. However, if, like this lot, you use them carefully and with a healthy dose of self-awareness they can make your music. From their name to their immaculately styled tracks ‘Men’s Adventures’ are dripping in cliches. There’s the woozy americana drawl that drags B.B.Vulture into life. The slicked back hair and dapper suits. The perfectly poised banality of ‘I Wish I Had More Friends’.

“I’m born alone. And i’ll die alone,” they lament before dropping a long list of tedious quasi-profound pensioner-complaints, accompanied by soothingly morose guitars. It would be horrible if they didn’t do it so well. Its the most perfectly self-indulgent nonsense but, somehow, beneath all the caterwauling and spaghetti-western posturing they manage to be quite profound. This is Django Unchained condensed into perfect, pocket-sized chunks of sound. We like it a lot.
