Danny Seim, one of the member of the Oregon indie-rock duo Menomena, has a direct connection to Utah.

"My dad was born in Salt Lake City," he said during a recent interview.

Seim said his family was religiously tolerant, but he did have a "crazy uncle" who liked to antagonize his Mormon neighbors. His license plate read "YRULDS."

Fortunately, "Not all of my family are jerks."

The experimental band is touring behind its 2012 album, "Moms," a concept album that admittedly "sounds heavy," said Seim. "My mom died when I was 17. I am 34 now. [Bandmate Justin Harris] was going through the death of his grandmother."

The band is still dealing with the amicable departure of founding member Brent Knopf, though it presented a good opportunity for the two remaining members. "There is always a clutter of ideas in the band," Seim said. "We went at it like an experiment. With two, there's not an odd man out."
