A Tune For Tuesday: Menomena - Taos

In a regular new section, Tuesday will be the outlet for those immediate tunes that grab the senses and won't let go. Lodged firmly in the synapses from the outset, they need little or no explanation and we'll sit back to let the music do the talking. 

MP3: Menomena - Taos (via Insound)
Taken from the new album Mines, out now

Buy it at Insound!

A pulsating, winding rock song from the Portland mob, Taos is one of the most engaging and accessible cuts from spunky new album Mines. The lyrics bound along with all kinds of instrumental flourishes and tempo changes, making for an addictive listen. 

But the point of this section is to simply serve up the tunes that are stuck on repeat play here and let you decide for yourself just how compelling they are on your ear. 

New Menomena...what say you?
