Mother Mother – Body Of Years

NAME: Mother Mother
SINGLE: Body Of Years
DATE: 10September2010

LABEL: Last Gang Records


FIVE WORD REVIEW: Head Boppin’ Canadian Good Times

LOCATION: Vancouver, Canada

LINE UP: Ryan – Vocals, Guitar. Molly – Vocals, Synth. Jasmin – Vocals, Keyboards. Jeremy – Bass, Brass. Ali – Percussion


WHAT’S THE STORY?: O, Canada. Over the past decade this country has been quietly and steadily producing some of the best indie around, from the darkly lavish arrangements of the Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene to the impossibly catchy Tegan and Sara. Specialising in the instantly recognisable male/female harmonies of the Vancouver scene, Mother Mother are soon to be another name to rattle off in the list of musically superior Canadians.

SOUNDS LIKE: Taken from ‘O My Heart,’ an album that deserves your attention, ‘Body of Years’ grabs you by the ears straight away and shakes you into submission. Long enough to include multiple breakdowns and even a hearty helping of Killers-esque synth, the song is great in every way possible. At times Ryan Guldemond’s voice wanders into Frank Black territory, and you could almost be listening to what the Pixies would sound like if they’d been reincarnated in 2007. Amazing. There is so much here to keep you coming back for more and more.

That Mother Mother aren’t huge yet is a travesty of epic proportions. Inwardly digest this song, hunt down the album, then give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back for your excellent taste.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF: You have a pulse.
