Lost Lander: Cold Feet

 

Is there a void left in your musical collection in the wake of a new release from Menomena and the band’s many side projects including Lackthereof or Ramona Falls?

Well I think I’ve found the answer – Matt Sheehy’s  new band Lost Lander and it’s no surprise there’s quite a similarity between all the bands. Sheehy plays bass for Brent Knopf (ex Menomena/current Ramona Falls) and in turn Knopf has taken over knob twiddling duties for the band’s debut album “DRRT” which was funded by a “telethon” campagin. Indeed, it seems a bit like Portland musical incest but it’s definitely a good thing.

Menomena’s new album “Mines” is out now and although there is many a corker featured, this video and track is still one of my favourites. From their 2007 album “Friend and Foe”, above is Wet and Rusting and below is some of their new material. Like their previous albums, their latest is quite the grower with more melodies and hooks revealing themselves with every listen. If you like what you hear you should also listen to some Ramona Falls and Lackthereof which have busied two of the band’s members in between Menomena albums. Now enjoy the music while I weep in the corver due to the fact they haven’t added an Irish date on their current tour.
