We are the men you’ll grow to love soon (yes, you are)

lets wrestle

I’ve always been a sucker for cocky Brit-rock, so it’s a natural for me to finally fall for Let’s Wrestle. This trio from London makes me want to pogo around in the springtime sun, drink G&Ts, and possibly drive fast (to better sing along with the ba ba baaaaas). But not all at the same time.

We Are The Men You’ll Grow To Love Soon – Let’s Wrestle

See? They even predicted my affinities in the song title. American girls are so simple.

let's wrestle coverI first heard this song streaming at work today while I listened to the free Urban Outfitters Sampler #9. Let’s Wrestle’s In The Court of The Wrestling is out now on Merge Records in the States, and you can can stream the whole record on their site. They just got off tour with Titus Andronicus, and have a few more dates with Quasi this week.

I also highly enjoyed reading this “self-interview” they did.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
