Menomena: Keeping Portland Weirdopbmusic.org

The Portland, Ore., rock band Menomena has just released Moms, its fourth album — and first since co-founder Brent Knopf left the group last year. The band's core members, Justin Harris and Danny Seim, carry forward Menomena's musical hallmarks (meaty baritone sax, bassline spines, rhythms that turn on a dime), which have made its sound such an original all these years.

Harris and Seim are joined here by an all-star cast — including Paul Alcott on keys, Matt Dabrowiak on guitar and Holcombe Waller on keys and vocals — for "Heavy Is As Heavy Does," recorded at Portland's Mississippi Studios.
