Thanks to Stereogum, you can now download my favorite track off Menomena's forthcoming Mines. "Taos" is wailing, explosive, and bluesy -- it puts me in the mind of the Black Keys' Brothers, which is definitely a good thing.
Here's the dish on Mines:
-- The official release date is July 27.
-- The band will be playing a free, all-ages in-store show at Queen Anne's Easy Street on July 28.
-- They'll also be headlining the Showbox at the Market on September 10.
-- The entire album is streaming on NPR right now.
-- If you pre-order the record through Barsuk, you get a ton of extras, like a seven-inch single with exclusive non-album tracks and a limited-edition glow-in-the-dark poster.
