Strangers in our House. Strangers in our House Tracklist. Strangers in our House Q&A. More Meneguar albums.
As much as I'm a music elitist, I purposefully try to not be a music hipster. I furtively check out pitchfork not to find new bands to rep, but to find which bands I should avoid.
Meneguar /mɪˈnɛɡwɑːr/ was an indie rock band whose members had previously played under different arrangements and names, but which reached its current form in 2004 in Brooklyn, New York. The group released the albums I Was Born at Night and Strangers in Our House on the Troubleman Unlimited label.
Strangers in Our House finds Meneguar solidifying its sound. Asserting it, perhaps. Needling guitars and emphatically nasally vocals combine with energetic drums to force the average Modest Mouse or Bloc Party fan to at least nod a head or tap a toe. Tracks like "Bury a Flower" and "Death on Display" might make them do both, depending on their coordination. Album opener "Table 2" starts off with some guitar noise, but once the notes start hitting for realsies, the song is all business. From there the album pulls few surprises, but it does deliver some great hooks. Meneguar's energy rarely falters on this record. Living in the White" boasts the repetition of the phrase "Let it go," and while that's amazingly simple, it's also simply amazing. Throw in some sweet guitar interplay on the bridge, and you've got yourself a prime mixtape candidate.

The group released its second CD, Strangers in Our House, on the Troubleman Unlimited label. The songs are so energetic and youthful that it's impossible to not get wrapped up by them, caught up and singing along to all the choruses and dancing to every melody.
Not enough people have heard of Meneguar, but this album is right up there in my ‘most listened to’, along with their earlier record ‘I Was Born At Night’, which is equally good. I think they played in Cambridge a couple of months before I first heard of them, and then broke up not long after, so I guess there’s a lesson in there somewhere. Wander's new album March is out March 1st. The month of March is a special month Mono Interview: We have the same hunger as when we were.
