this album is my first introduction to Mother Mother.  it made a solid first impression, though; 10/11 tracks are great.  good energy throughout and nice to drive to.  of particular note are the female vocals; they’re really unique and contribute to the band’s distinctive sound.  anyhow here is what may or may not be the […]

i know this is old-ish already but i’ve kind of developed a liking for these guys due to their latest.  it’s a solid album; i can’t think of a track that stands out as bad on it.  in fact, all of the tracks are quite good.  seems to work for driving, which i’ve been doing […]
