Time To Get Manly 68: Luna - Penthouse

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Luna - Penthouse

"You're out all night/Chasin' girlies/You're late to work/ And you go home early." I have a feeling that these lyrics from "Chinatown" heavily influenced Esquire's decision to include Luna's Penthouse on this list. Because these words encapsulate the very essence of manliness: Non-stop partying, oodles of women, and having a job that pays you enormous sums of money but requires very little responsibility. Ah, the Esquire life! Also, Luna's founder Dean Wareham eventually started a band with and married the woman who was the singing voice for Jem. If that's not a goddamn fairytale existence, I don't know what is.
