This is a big night coming up on Friday.
I emplore you to go listen to their music, as it will surely be the medicine you need.
I repeat…this is another “I told you so” type of show. You DO NOT want to miss this.
“Listening to Mother Mother is like reading Hunter S. Thompson – you end up in a place where reality has been delightfully skewed, though you’re not altogether aware of it.” – ML, Chart Attack
“TOUCH UP comes packed with acute, snappy pop songs…the free-spirited TOUCH UP feels refreshing as an album isolated from a lot of today’s worn-out trends and aesthetic mimicry.” – Pitchfork Media
“Touch Up may just be the best album of 2007, and Mother Mother have set the standard that everyone — Arcade Fire, Stars, Wolf Parade, The New Pornographers, everyone — will have to try and measure themselves against.” – I Heart Music
” As the album starts with some muted chords, a cowbell and a three part round you sense you are about to hear something different from the norm. Folky, bluegrass breakdowns and harmonies are paired with freak folk interludes, yelps and drums. I know this sounds like it would never work, but it really does.” – Hero Hill, Music Blog
“Mother Mother, a brilliantly playful pop quintet from Vancouver, covers all the big subjects (love, death, transvestitism) on their debut disc, and always finds the dark fun in them.” – The Globe and Mail – 4 stars
