So after listening to the travesty that is Lil’ Yachty’s last mixtape, I thankfully stumbled upon a palate cleanser of sorts.
Montreal-based band Men I Trust creates music that Brooklyn Vegan adequately labels “Dreampop.” Usually I scoff at new, made up, genres (remember “chill wave?”), but somehow this makes sense here. The combinations of soft melodies and lush vocals takes me into a state. The sound may be a bit too “soft” for a lot of y’alls ears, but to be, it’s the perfect combination that dropped at the perfect time.
The band is in the middle of an American tour with Belle & Sebastian, and sadly the NYC dates at Baby’s All Right and Mercury Lounge are sold out.
