Portland indie-rock group Menomena is coming to Honolulu. Fresh from a run of date supporting the New Pornographers and a Coachella appearance, Menomena will play Next Door on May 27th.
Mines, their most recent Barsuk Records release and the follow up to the acclaimed Friend and Foe (awarded “Best New Music” by Pitchfork, with a score of 8.5) is deeply captivating and entirely unconventional.
Since its release, Mines has been lauded by critics at music culture observatories. Alternative Press called it “meticulously crafted,” and Filter described it as “magical.” Paste Magazine summed it this way: “full-blown insanity finally breaks free of the straightjacket. … Mines is Menomena at its best – mentally and physically ruthless.”
See Menomena live on stage at Next Door, then hear what they have to say about their music and life on the road at Talk Story Sessions, Sunday May 29 at The Waikiki EDITION. CLICK FOR MORE INFO.
