Unreleased Menomena music + PDX show + vinyl reissue

After a decade-long hiatus, Portland, Oregon-based experimental indie rock trio Menomena (Justin Harris, Danny Seim, and returning co-founder Brent Knopf) announced an August 10, 2024 show in their hometown to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band's beloved debut album I Am the Fun Blame Monster! along with a pre-order for a colored-vinyl reissue of the long-out-of-print LP via SlyVinyl Records.

Menomena also announced a series of expanded-edition digital reissues of their Barsuk Records albums Friend And Foe (2007), Mines (2010), and Moms (2012), and as an appetizer they released their first music to hit streaming platforms in over a decade: The Insulation EP contains three Mines-era tracks any of which could easily have been singles, each culled from an excavation of the band's archives during which they found a large quantity of large-quality music that had either never made its way to digital music services or had never been released at all.

This somewhat chaotic barrage of announcements caps a decade in which the members of Menomena have kept quite busy with a volume of other projects (Harris as a member of UK-based fellow genre-breakers Bloc Party; Knopf with his solo project Ramona Falls and then with EL VY, his collaboration with The National's Matt Berninger; Seim with his solo project Lackthereof and as the creative director of Louisville, KY's Portland Museum where his current project is curating and building a children's museum). 16 Apr 2024
