Excuse us if we've spent too much time covering Menkena in these past few weeks, sharing music videos with you, and giving you free songs off their debut record and all.
It's just that, you see, we've been sitting on With You I'll Travel, the full-length debut from the so-called acoustic shoegaze outfit, for over a year now. And we've been getting antsy four you all to hear the fine work from New York City transplant Jimmy Menkena, formerly of the punk outfit INDK, and his collaborators Nolan Thies, Mike Simmons, Toby Pipes and others -- if only so you could know what our slobbering has been about.
Expect a review of the disc in a very near print edition of DC9. But first, we recommend you check out a new music video from the band after the jump -- this one for the song "I'm One." It should provide you ample reason to check out the band tomorrow night at La Grange, as the band celebrates With You I'll Travel's release.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
