As you may have noticed, I'm slightly obsessed with the band Menkena. Ever since I got their seven track EP at the beginning of the year, it's been in heavy rotation in my CD player. I've seen them perform countless times this year, including when they played the 2 year GOBL anniversary show at City Tavern. At that show, they performed several tracks that will be released on their first full length CD, which should be released early next year.
One track from the upcoming album is "Red in the Morning", an absolutely gorgeous song that also features Nikki Cage (True Widow) on backup vocals. I've frequently placed the track in the weekly MySpace playlists, and now I want to share the track with my readers. Consider it my Christmas gift to you, the faithful Ghost of Blind Lemon readers. Download now, because I take the track down after Christmas.
