Now per­form­ing as a four-piece with Joe Haege from 31 Knots, Menom­ena always man­age to sound both exact­ing and reck­less as they tear through their typ­i­cally idio­syn­cratic songs — their struc­tures are com­posed with such pre­ci­sion, yet some­times it seems like the band isn’t entirely sure when to start and stop. But that’s all part of the fun! All self-professed “con­trol freaks,” Brent Knopf, Justin Har­ris, and Danny Seim never for­get to add a dose of humor to their care­fully crafted music.
