[MATH ROCK SUPERSTARS] If an outsider didn\'t learn about Portland music via the Decemberists, it was probably through Menomena. These giants of avant-pop (literally: giants—they\'re built like stiltwalkers) make cut-up art-rock that never seems to go where it think you will. The band\'s debut record, 2004\'s I Am the Fun Blame Monster, ushered Portland into the modern indie era. The group has changed a bit in recent years, most notably losing founding member Brent Knopf in 2010, but its last record, 2012\'s Moms, proves Menomena remains a puzzle worth figuring out.
