obSESSED: Mother Mother
[vimeo http://vimeo.com/20261792] Sometimes a girl needs a superb rock show to kick-start a week, and that is exactly what I received on Monday. Sadly, it had been months since I had seen a show, but thanks to one of my favorite show companions, I was tipped off to the Mother Mother show at Schuba's and decided to throw my "I don't go out on Monday nights" cautionary to the wind. I was not disappointed.
This is a very talented band with 3 unique voices that sound amazing together. It's very rare that a band outperforms their album, switching it up, adding variety, and segging their song "Body Of Years" into a riff of the Pixies' "Gouge Away" and the back. Loved their live show. If they could be playing in my house in the morning I'd jump out of bed. While I'm working on my proposal letter for that, check out one of my favorites above, the title track, from their album, O My Heart. (Other favorites: "Ghosting," "Body of Years.") Or go to the link below to listen to tunes from their most recent LP, Eureka (Favorites: "Problems," "Oleander," "The Stand.") If you like your tunes a bit eccentric and a lot high energy, maybe you can swap out your alarm clock too.
