Album Review

In some cases, artsy groups that delight in being self-indulgent and eccentric aren't terribly worried about accessibility. Their attitude is that if you appreciate and comprehend what they're doing, great — and if not, so be it. But Mother Mother's second album, O My Heart, is one of those CDs that achieves a healthy, attractive balance of accessibility and artsy experimentation. It isn't as though alternative pop/rock/folk-rock offerings such as "Wrecking Ball," "Arms Tonight," and "Wisdom" are apologetic about being quirky and skewed; in fact, this part-male, part-female group from Canada sound like they are having a great deal of fun providing off-center lyrics. But while O My Heart certainly doesn't go out of its way to be accessible lyrically, it is quite accessible musically. O My Heart has something that other "artsy-as-hell-and-proud-of-it" discs lack: hooks. There are hooks galore on this 2008 release. So even if listeners have a hard time absorbing a song's lyrics and figuring out what the song is trying to get across, Mother Mother's abundance of honest-to-God hooks make O My Heart easy to digest on a musical and melodic level. Musically, O My Heart is often infectious, and that musical infectiousness pulls the listener in regardless of how abstract the lyrics can be. Mother Mother showed a lot of promise on their appealing, if imperfect, debut album, Touch Up; they still have some growing and developing to do, but all things considered, O My Heart is a creative success for the Canadian unit.

Customer Reviews

I was mistaken

For some reason, Mother Mother makes my scalp tingle. They're like mint shampoo, but more vocal. Beautiful harmonies, and unusual timing...with all the prerequisite weirdness that's inherent in so many great alt bands. Their lyrics usually make me laugh with their cleverness...I suspect them as book readers. You can't go wrong buying this album...if you don't have Touch-up, get it first.

I just Can't Stop

teachers have taking my ipod away 6 times this week. I just can't stop listening to it!!!!

Fantastic New Album by a Great Canadian Band

An easy purchase if you have listened to Mother Mother's freshmen album "Touch UP". The group is really tight and work well together to produce some truly unique and addictive to listen to songs. Favourites of mine of this new album are O My Heart and Hayloft. This album is a great sophmore release by the band and will surely set them on their way to stardom. Mother Mother is great band to invest in and you won't be disappointed. They are able to mix folk, rock and rap seemlessly together. If you like electic sounding music then this is the album for you. Mother Mother is fantastic live, so if you get the chance to see them, I highly recommend doing so.

Playing smart and amiable folk-rock with an alternative edge, biting wit, and a jazzy sense of sophistication, Mother Mother hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and true to their name they started out as a family affair. Guitarist and singer Ryan Guldemond had been writing songs and wanted to start playing them at local clubs. Feeling the tunes needed harmonies, he asked his sister Molly Guldemond to join him. Molly invited her friend Debra-Jean Creelman to add her voice to the mix, and...
