Video: Menomena – Evil Bee

Those of you who have been giddily following Menomena, as I have, since the release of their first full length album, playfully titled I Am The Fun Blame Monster, will be pleased to know that they’ve released a video for Evil Bee from their most recent and most excellent effort Friend And Foe. While the video is a rather sick and twisted affair (i.e. vomiting and fornicating bumblebees enslaved and forced into cannibalism by an evil race of crows... with tank treads?) still, you can’t help but find these guys downright lovable. While their albums are generally darker in tone and subject matter, there is a pervading childlike quality to their music that is unmistakably Menomena.

Plus, how can you not love a band that can incorporate the words chrysanthemum and germinate into a jazz-rock song (Monkey's Back)… and actually pull it off… successfully?!?! ‘Nuff said.

You can find the video for Evil Bee on (high quality, annoying interface) or youtube (I’m sure you’re familiar with the site).

Also check out this weird as hell video for Cough Coughing from IATFBM.
