The best thing about everyone compiling ‘best of lists’ for 2012 is that you get to catch up on some of the songs that have rudely passed you by over the past 12 months. Menomena’s Heavy Is As Heavy Does is one such case. Slow, melodious and thoughtful, this track is a wonderful conglomeration of pondering sound bites, rich, contemplative lyrics and raucous displays of intense musical emotion. At around 2.45 this song gloriously suddenly plunges off the cliff into an unrelenting, expansive space of brutish, musical fun. Enjoy!
