Mines is the fourth album from the Portland, Oregon-based band Menomena. It was released on July 27, 2010 by Barsuk Records, in North America, and City Slang, in Europe. The album was self-produced and recorded by the band. The title comes from the plural possessive word of "mine", and the cover art features a picture of a broken sculpture in the woods printed in stereogram.
The album debuted on the Billboard 200 chart at #96.
In April 2010, the band recruited Joe Haege, of fellow Portland bands Tu Fawning and 31knots, as a touring member.
In a July 2009 interview, Justin Harris said "Over the course of the last year, we've pushed deadlines back further and further, due to various reasons. We weren't all on the same writing page, necessarily."
The album was recorded in the same way they've worked on their previous albums, by jamming and recording hundreds of loops spontaneously, using their Deeler software, then piecing together the loops and adding vocals. About the process, Danny Seim added "We made big strides building skeletal song structures, and did a decent job collaborating as the ideas began to take shape. But just when a song became familiar to one of us, the other two members broke it apart again, breaking each others’ hearts along the way. We rerecorded, rebuilt, and ultimately resented each other. And believe it or not, we’re all proud of the results."
