Menomena Side Project: Lackthereof

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff

Menomena drummer Danny Seim is gearing up for a release with his side project Lackthereof. It will be the ninth release for the furiously prolific project (and prolific Mr. Seim), something that gives him the creative flexibility he wants outside of his "day job" with Menomena. It's lo-fi home recording at its finest.

 

"Menomena is an incredibly difficult democracy to be a part of," Seim tells us of his desire to indulge in Lackthereof. "On one hand, I'm in this intense collaboration with two uncannily talented and extremely opinionated people who both have as much say in the outcome of every miniscule decision, both in a creative and a business sense, as I do. On the other hand, uh, I'm in this intense collaboration with two uncannily talented and extremely opinionated people who both have as much say in the outcome of every miniscule decision, both in a creative and a business sense, as I do. In a nutshell, Lackthereof has always been a way for me to do anything I want to without worrying about how any other collaborators would tear it up and reconstruct it. This is both a blessing and a curse," Danny told CMJ when talking about the project.

 

Lackthereof's album, titled Your Anchor, will come out on Barsuk Records on July 22nd.
