As you’d expect from an album called ‘Moms’, much of Menomena’s fifth offering is preoccupied with family matters. Maybe it’s the destabilisation suffered by original members Danny Seim and Justin Harris (since 2010’s excellent ‘Mines’, bandmate Brent Knopf has stormed out in a haze of malcontent), but the Portland duo’s latest collection seems to be an exercise in proving that they’re able to stick together. And, mostly, it’s a success. ‘Plumage’ finds them truncating the whims of their past output, while fi nisher ‘One Horse’ does the opposite, sprawling into a ghostly ten-minute opus. They stayed together. Truly, we’re maternally grateful.
