New: Menomena - "Toomer"

Menomena band

This new single from Menomena maybe a leftover cut from their Moms sessions, but it's not something you would have assumed had I not let the cat out of the bag, so to speak. The laidback synth-and-drum-focused nugget plays into the whole my-ex-girlfriend-is-a-toomer metaphor ("Call me cruel/call me rude/I'm a cancer/you're a toom too"). You'll find it on a new double A-side single they are releasing on iTunes later today. Stream "Toomer" below and sit tight for "Banyon". Also, consider catching the duo on tour with Guards next month. Head to the bottom of the post for the dates.
