My heart swells with pride to see that Blazers shirt -- make no mistake, I grew up in Portland and am a huge Blazers fan. My Northwest bias doesn't, however, get in the way of recognizing just how good and album Mines really is.
Like what you see? Well Menomena's tour winds through Tempe's Clubhouse on Saturday, September 18. Mines is out now via Barsuk.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
