Menomena

Portland, Oregon-based experimental rock outfit Menomena originally consisted of multi-instrumentalists Justin Harris, Brent Knopf, and Danny Seim. They assembled much of their debut album, I Am the Fun Blame Monster!, by using a computer program dubbed Deeler and developed by Knopf. The album's unusual packaging was in the form of a flipbook depicting the bandmembers performing. Menomena released it themselves on a very limited basis in 2003, then signed to the Portland independent label FILMguerrero for a national release in October 2004, accompanied by a national tour. Before signing to Barsuk, the band issued Under an Hour, a three-movement instrumental record that had originally accompanied a 2004 modern dance performance in Portland.

Things were a little more straightforward, however, on Friend and Foe (cover art notwithstanding, which was designed by Craig Thompson, author of the graphic novel Blankets), which came out in early 2007. The band continued with this more focused approach, and in 2010 released its fourth album, Mines. Following that release, Knopf announced he would be leaving the band to focus on his solo project, Ramona Falls, leaving Harris and Seim to continue on as a duo. The group returned in its streamlined form in 2012 with Moms, Menomena's most personal album to date. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Yea! Just saw them in Denver without B. Knopf for the first time. It was a great show, though. Two other guys were there plaing with Danny and Justin; they did a great job. Go Menomena!

This record has been haunting me since it came out. One of the best "new" bands out there and their latest record is a sure testament to this fact.

Friend and Foe is criminally underrated. The production is really sharp for an indie record, and their sound is not easily replicated. These guys know what they are doing in the studio. "the pelican" is an amazing song.
