Good Portland Pop!

Menomena FriendsShins Wincing

Two new CDs came out yesterday from Portland bands that both deserve a listen: Menomena’s ‘Friend or Foe’ and The Shins’ ‘Wincing the Night Away’. The graphic design for Menomena is stunning though the picture above doesn’t do it justice, and the music is back in the mold of ‘I am the Fun Blame Monster’. The Shins CD is pure pop, stealing from the greats and making it sound somehow their own too.

Reviews of Menomena and The Shins from Pitchfork.
