Just thought I’d post this pretty incredible video in case you haven’t seen it. Menomena (‘rhymes with ‘Phenomena’ – I’ve been pronouncing it wrong for the last while on my show) released the superb ‘Friend And Foe’ album a couple of months ago. Having only discovered it recently, I’m still getting used to it but it’s definitely shaping up to be one of the albums of the year. They come from Portland, Oregon – also home to another band that have caught my ear recently, Blitzen Trapper, and involve themselves in the very popular art of inter-band instrument-swapping.
The video is for the track ‘Evil Bee’ but if you like it, check out the video for Wet & Rusting on YouTube which is fantastic in a bouncy-stylee.
