Portland indie rockers Menomena have a new album called Moms out soon, and if first single "Heavy Is As Heavy Does" is anything to go by, it's going to be rather, uh, heavy. Not unlike The Walkmen's latest album, Heaven, Menomena'sMoms is said to center around the theme of family, though it might be more accurate to say the album is about surviving ones family.
