close your eyes if it helps.

Menomena is not a secret, nor is my adoration for their odd jazzy funky style. Don't just take my word for it. Actually, please do.
So, after a recent extended apparent slumber, what has Menomena announced? Well, here are some hints:
Rocky Votolato, What Made Milwaukee Famous, Starlight Mints, Smoosh, Jim Noir, Mates of State, Viva Voce, (and Harvey Danger?).
Menomena has penned their names at the bottom of one or several sheets of paper that may or may not have printed on them a small dog with a record in his mouth.
Menomena has signed to Barsuk records.
Catch them on tour with The Long Winters and What Made Milwaukee Famous this Fall (See dates below).
Spend hours wrapped up in I Am The Fun Blame Monster.
Anxiously anticipate Friend and Foe's arrival in early 2007 on Barsuk Records.
Thank your lucky stars for Music Saves*.

*Pertains specifically to me.
