Menomena In A Basement

Been a while since we’ve heard from Stereogum crush Menomena, but that doesn’t mean we don’t think about them longingly on nostalgic walks in the park or stare longingly at the image of their album art. The Portland trio recently descended into the depths of Juan’s Basement, where last we saw Jesse Sykes, to perform the propulsive prog-gospel pop of Friend And Foe champ “Muscle’n Flo.” Juan knows video; dig the jerky cuts through the verse and the trickling bridge’s underwater-rippling soft-focus. Quite stylish.
