Menomena in-studio performance videos

Last month, Menomena stopped by the opbmu­ studios to do an exclusive in-studio live set. The elusive Portland band played the songs "Kilemall", "Tithe", "Queen Black Acid", "TAOS", "Sleeping Beauty" and "INTIL" from their latest album Mines. Additionally, they talked about (and occasionally around) the difficulties they had in finishing the record and the rotating dictatorship that is Menomena.

Menomena will be playing at Le Guess Who? on Friday November 26th.

Now per­form­ing as a four-piece with Joe Haege from 31 Knots, Menom­ena always man­age to sound both exact­ing and reck­less as they tear through their typ­i­cally idio­syn­cratic songs — their struc­tures are com­posed with such pre­ci­sion, yet some­times it seems like the band isn’t entirely sure when to start and stop. But that’s all part of the fun! All self-professed “con­trol freaks,” Brent Knopf, Justin Har­ris, and Danny Seim never for­get to add a dose of humor to their care­fully crafted music.
