MEN, the Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective consists of core members JD Samson (Le Tigre) Michael O’Neill (Ladybug Transistor) and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (LTTR), released their debut album ‘Talk About Body’ on IAMSOUND.
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.
MEN’s brand new single Who Am I is the third single to be taken from this debut album and follows on from previous singles Credit Card Babies and Off Our Backs.
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.
With an explosive live show, MEN look set to take 2011 by storm.
