Menomena Back with Mines This Summer


Portland, OR trio Menomena (Justin Harris, Brent Knopf, and Danny Seim) will return this summer with its much anticipated fourth studio album. The album, entitled Mines will be released on July 27th via Barsuk (North America) and City Slang (worldwide). Mines (tracklisting below) is the follow-up to their very excellent Friend and Foe released in 2007. 

Certainly no strangers to the best cover art, the band’s first album featured unusual packaging in the form of a flipbook depicting the band members performing. Menomena promises more artistic goodness with their latest effort as well. The cover of Mines depicts a statue in a forest, and while it looks fairly normal on your average computer screen, will actually be included as a stereogram optical illusion.

Mines:

01. Queen Black Acid
02. Taos
03. Killemall
04. Dirty Cartoons
05. Tithe
06. Bote
07. Lunchmeat
08. Oh Pretty Boy, You're Such a Big Boy
09. Five Little Rooms
10. Sleeping Beauty
11. Intil

Lead single “Five Little Rooms” can be downloaded for free from the band's official site in exchange for an email address (details below).

I haven't visited in a while. I read your posts typically in my Google Reader. Nice new(?) layout, but what happened to the boxes you could click below the comment section?

Anyway, the new Menomena album is ace!

Did you get the inspiration for your new layout from the conveyor belt in the Menomena video? Very clever!
