Mixin’ With Menomena
Filed under: Mixin' With Series,Mixtapes | Posted by:

Those crazy guys in Menomena have given us a mixtape. And what is that subject of that mixtape you might ask? Why, it’s Neil Young’s “Harvest” and it’s not just a couple of songs off of the record, but the whole darn thing. So let Menomena take you on their very own personal tour of the Neil Young classic. To see Menomena in action, you can check them out on July 26 at the Capitol Hill Block Party (with Fleet Foxes, Vampire Weekend, Devotchka and The Cave Singers) in Seattle, Washington or Sunset Junction (with the Beachwood Spark, Langhorne Slim, Black Keys and Broken Social Scene) in Los Angeles on August 23rd. 

Menomena’s Top Ten Favorite Songs On “Harvest”:

1. “Out on the Weekend” – This song speaks volumes to anyone who has ever left the house on a Saturday or a Sunday.
2. “Harvest” – This song perfectly sums up the process of reaping the benefits of the fields. 
3. “A Man Needs a Maid” – This song appropriately describes the masculine urge to facilitate a female servant.
4. “Heart of Gold” – This song hones in on the concept of having a ticker composed of a precious ore.
5. “Are You Ready for the Country?” – This song poses a logical question involving one’s preparedness for the great outdoors.
6. “Old Man” – This song speaks directly to males who have reached a seniority status.
7. “There’s a World” – This song explicitly states the existence of a global condition. 
8. “Alabama” – This song was written specifically for a southern U.S. region flanked by Mississippi and Georgia. 
9. “The Needle and the Damage Done” – This song addresses an unspecific amount of destruction inflicted by a metallic pin.
10. “Words (Between the Lines of Age)” – This song brings to life a relationship in the midst of comments and underscored maturation.

Hey Joe,
We’ve been going through the old mixes and uploading the links—but it takes a while to get through them all. If you’d like to hear any mixes sooner rather than later, let us know in the comments. Thanks1
