THE VINYL WORD: MENOMENA’S FOURTH FULL-LENGTH ALBUM OUT ON WAX PLUS A LIMITED EDITION GATEFOLD DOUBLE 7″

With Mines, the Portland experimental rock trio Menomena‘s fourth full-length release continues where they started on their epic debut I am the Blame Fun Monster and builds upon it ingenious third album, Friend and Foe. The album warms up with the slow tempo song “Queen Black Acid,” before making way for more experimental tracks like “Taos,” a garage-rock number full of frolicking vibes, and the heavy and complex mix of guitar riffs and drum beats in “Bote.” Menomena also wonderfully mixes and matches these energetic, fast-paced numbers with mellow, calm and content songs, like “Dirty Cartoons” and “Intil,” that will automatically grow on you. You will soon realize that despite its overdone complexity, Mines doesn’t stray far from the band’s usual formula yet still manages to be magical.

EXCLUSIVE: A Mines Double Seven Inch is also available  featuring alternate versions of two album songs, plus two exclusive b-sides on this limited-edition gatefold double 7″ (limited to 1000 numbered copies worldwide).
