Mines Tracklisting And Album Cover Debut on Pitchfork
Menomena, the Portland, OR, based trio, will release their fourth full-length record, Mines, July 27th on Barsuk Records (and in Europe July 26th on City Slang). Fans can now download the album track “Five Little Rooms” via www.menomena.com/mines (or, for you Twitter users, tweet #menomenaMINES).
Pitchfork debuted the album cover and tracklisting earlier today, right here: http://pitchfork.com/news/38849-new-menomena-five-little-rooms/
In keeping with the band’s tradition of engaging interactive packaging (see I Am The Fun Blame Monster’s flip book, and Friend & Foe’s intricate die-cut puzzle), what look like identical front- and back-cover images for Mines are actually slightly different stereographic photos, visible as a three-dimensional single image if the curious viewer crosses his/her/its eyes just right.
(Still confused? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereoscopy#Visual_requirements)
Additionally, the band has announced the following European tour dates:
June 05 – Paris – La Fleche D’or
June 07 – London – Hoxton Bar & Kitchen
June 09 – Amsterdam – Studio 80
June 12 – Luzern – B-Sides
