Over the past ten years, Portland trio Menomena
has quietly put together an impressive career, built on their complex, hard-hitting brand of indie-pop. Their new album, Mines
, hits shelves next Tuesday, but in the meantime, you can hear it in its entirety over at NPR

Or maybe you won't. Either way, check it out.
