New album by Mother Mother- Eureka, out March 15th 2011

Mother Mother is a band I think everyone should give a little listen too. They have been one of my favourite bands since I first heard of them, and recently I became aware that they are releasing a new album very soon! Counting down the days now, because that is one I want my hands on right away.

So for you guys to get an earful I’m posting their single The Stand from Eureka, along with some of my favourite songs from their second and first albums. They can be loads of fun to have going while you ski. Each album has a slight different sound, so give ’em all a listen. The Stand has the classic Mother Mother style, but for some reference, it kind of reminds me of a mix between MGMT and Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head, (I’m not sure if that last reference will help many people but its the best I got..) One of the best parts of the Mother Mother sound is their lyrics, truly awesome. However I’ll leave it up to you to listen…

Lets start with Mother Mothers first album. Below is the artwork for Touch Up, along with the song of the same name, Touch Up.

One of my favourite songs by MM is called Wrecking Ball, and it is off their second album O My Heart. Below is the song, (no music video sadly), and the album artwork.

And lastly, here is the art for their album Eureka, and a video for The Stand, Mother Mother’s first single off the new album.

The band is doing a little bit more touring right now, around a bunch of the USA but also around Vancouver Island, my home sweet home, if anyone reading this is from that neck of the woods then check them out! Upcoming shows in Naniamo and Campbell River.
