Unless you are high on peyote you probably can't tell from that above image, but the new Menomena album Mines has cool stereogram cover (just like those magic eye paintings you'd buy at the mall where a unicorn magically appears). Keep staring at it though, maybe something will happen (it won't).
But before your eyes bleed from such intense concentration, have a listen to the fantastic "Five Little Rooms," the first single from Mines (in stores July 27th). You can download the thing right here, and I'll let the band explain the rest:
It's the ninth track on our new album
It started out as one song a few years ago and ended up an entirely different song a few months ago
It prominently features the words "prostitute", "children", "hung", "bridegroom", "suburban" and "mcdonalds" (we're edgy now, haven't you heard?)
It was the last song to be chosen for the new record, which, in our perverted world, somehow makes it the most appropriate choice for the first single
It's either the best or the worst song we've ever written; you decide!
Our friendly label folks wanted me to rewrite the following info in a more personal way, but I'm having a hard time outdoing their informative enthusiasm. I'll just cut and paste instead:
"Get a download of "Five Little Rooms" now! In a few weeks, you'll get exclusive information on the upcoming Mines pre-order including a limited-edition double 7-inch with non-album tracks, exclusive t-shirts, screen-printed posters and more!"
