Makers of winsome, jangly pop, Brighton, UK's Fear of Men have released a steady stream of collectible 7" singles since forming two years ago. Those hard-to-find tracks are being compiled for the band's first North American release, Early Fragments, which is out in February 13 on Kanine Records. The marbled vinyl edition is limited to 500 copies and can be pre-ordered now. You can stream a few tracks from it below.
The band are making their first trip across the Atlantic for SXSW and they'll play Festival NRMAL in Montery, Mexico beforehand. After SXSW, Fear of Men will stop in NYC on their way home, playing Pianos on March 20 with Field Mouse. Tickets for that show are on sale now. I would be surprised if they didn't add a second NYC show, but we'll see.
