Menomena announce more tour dates + new live VIDEO

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Portland's Menomena have announced additional summer dates in support of their album Friend And Foe, released earlier this year. The dates will take them through June and the first part of July. Opening bands include Talkdemonic and All Smiles, depending on location. They'll also hit the Pitchfork Music Festival and play with the Decemberists in Oregon for the final date.

Barsuk Records has also offered up a video of the band live from Juan's Basement, so you can check out the lively live experience. It's available right now on the Galaxy Media Player in the video section.

Menomena is completely self-reliant, doing all of their own recording, engineering, mixing and producing on all of their albums, including Friend And Foe. Menomena practice the ancient art of 'Deeler Sessions' in which the band uses a program written by Keyboard Guy /Guitarist Brent Knopf to loop sound files together. The band then works to lay instrumentation and vocals over the top of the loops, combining one part found sound structure and one part songwriting to come up with an experimental way of creating music.
