streaming over on Hype Machine
it's awesome, can't wait for the November show at Cargo!
until I realised that the singer sounds exactly like the one in Kings of Leon.
I think one of them sounds like Damon Albarn (the one who sings Queen Black Acid amoung others).
I'm genuinely interested in which one you mean because I can't hear it. Which tracks on Mines does he sing?
though I beg to differ.
A bit Menomena by numbers. The second half however, is great.
about ten times in a row
nice bedwetters tag btw
i like the drummers voice best

have the mp3 of that already, bit of a menomena fanboy, only band t shirt i still own
but this record is pretty good, has its moments. Doesn't quite wow me like Mines. (Haven't really listened to it that closely yet.)
Seems more immediate than Mines, maybe that's just me - I never listened to Mines much when it first came out, but have played this countless times already.
Just found it a bit average for them. Some of the songs drag on a bit and don't really do enough. I really like Capsule though. Maybe it will grow on me. I don't think Mines was instant either.
I'll be listening to this all morning. A little fearful of Menomena post-Brent, but I'll hold out until I've heard the whole album
Menomena still sound great. 'Moms' possibly suffers from being a bit too intense: almost every song rises to a crazy climax and you do feel the need for a breather, but this is no disappointment... Better, indeed, than the second Ramona Falls album
Friend or Foe is still my favourite by a long shot, followed by I am the fun blame monster. Great live band.
One of the best gigs I've been to in the past few years.
easily two of the best songs I've heard all year. This album is a beautiful, cathartic beast and deserves to be massive. Fuck stupid people. Pair of genius's
until more people listen to them.
Why aren't Menomena bigger in the UK?
like the sort that make you stop and go 'what the fuck is that, it's amazing?'
Can't wait to hear this album, although I fear the lack of Brent...
although he had a softer voice which you miss occasionally.
Mines is one of the best albums of the last few years, like what of I've heard of Moms so far
arriving, hopefully dont get nasty import tax
sounded great on a dramatic cycle through rain and sun w/ a backdrop of glistening semi-autumnal trees and winding wet suburbia. 'Baton' especially.
really cool choppy and percussive feel with the subtley inventive synth going on.
now these beautiful hips are tragically wide"
to knock this out of my top 5. It's ruddy brilliant, I'd be hard pushed to pick a favourite track, but it's bristling with wonderful moments. The guitar solo on Pique, that bassline on Skintercourse, the wild guitar stabs and saxophone on Plumage, y'know, everything about every song.
If you'd have told me at the beginning of the year that the new Menomena album was going to be better than the new Ramona Falls, I don't think I'd have believed you. To me, Moms was good, but the sound of Menomena getting complacent in their sound and Ramona Falls sounded like something which had endless potential.
Yet here we are, with the new RF being a less interesting progression from the first, and Menomena sounding more vital and alive than they ever have.
Touche Menomena, touche.
I thought Brent would go on to do something special and Menomena would sound a bit lost. T'other way round, I think.
