Album Review

An announcer's voice begins Mother Mother's third album, Eureka, with the words, "Commonplace things seem to have great significance," after which a female voice cheerily calls out, "Hi!" It's a good introduction to another collection of Ryan Guldemond's quirky songs, on which he is accompanied by his sister Molly and Jasmin Parkin.

Guldemond and his friends are intent on amusing themselves here, and more often than not, they succeed in entertaining their listeners as well.

Molly invited her friend Debra-Jean Creelman to add her voice to the mix, and...
