After an exciting year of virtually non-stop globetrotting, Canadian art-pop quintet MOTHER MOTHER wasted no time getting back into recording mode to create what they are pleased to present to the world as their fourth studio effort: THE STICKS, out today via Last Gang Records. Recorded during the winter of 2012 in Mother Motherís hometown of Vancouver and co-produced by the groupís own frontman/principle songwriter Ryan Guldemond and producer/engineer Ben Kaplan (Shakira, Mudvayne, Gallows), THE STICKS upholds Mother Motherís tradition of tri-harmony vocal arrangements and dynamic instrumentation, while making for the groupís most eclectic and rich album to date. As such it is no surprise that even before being released to the world, THE STICKS has yielded a Top 5 radio single: the smash hit "Let's Fall In Love", currently dominating the airwaves of alternative and modern rock radio across Canada. The track is an ironic homage to tunesmith Cole Porter and a moody yet epic song about the foolhardy games we play in the arena of romance.
THE STICKS follows a whirlwind year of near constant touring in support of Mother Motherís previous release, the critically acclaimed EUREKA. The album once again put Mother Mother at the top of Canadaís indie charts, but also planted the group quite prominently onto the mainstream radar. EUREKA produced three Top 20 alternative radio singles including the infectious smash hit ďThe StandĒ which peaked at #3 at Canadian alternative (#5 at modern rock), and yielded a Juno-nominated music video. The albumís success also earned the group their first Juno Award nomination, as well as two Sirius XM Indie Award nominations. Already widely commended for their exceptional live show, it comes as no surprise that Mother Motherís popularity on the heels of EUREKA further translated into sold out performances at 1000-2000 capacity venues in nearly every major market in Canada and rendered the group a summer music festivalattraction with appearances at some of Canadaís most popular music festivals such as Ottawa Blues Fest, Osheaga, Hillside, Calgary Stampede, Rifflandia, and LIVE at Squamish to name a few. Over the course of their short career, they've also shared the stage with some of Canada's most revered alt/rock institutions such as Sam Roberts, Matthew Good, Our Lady Peace, City And Colour and Metric. Internationally, Mother Motherís reception is already mirroring that of their homelandís, indicative by the recognition theyíve garnered from institutions such as BBC Radio, MTV, and tastemaker publications Q, Spin and Paste among others.
Mother Motherís rapid ascent from an acoustic folk trio touring the open mics of their hometown to an internationally revered alternative pop/rock five-piece touring the clubs, theaters and event centers of North America and Europe not only demonstrates just how far theyíve come but has also blazed the trail for whatís to follow. Featuring the multi-talented line up of Ryan Guldemond (vocals/guitar), Molly Guldemond (vocals/synth), Jasmin Parkin (vocals/keys), Jeremy Page (bass/horns) and Ali Siadat (percussion/electronics), Mother Motherís unique blend of clever lyrics, stunning vocals, quirky arrangements and a multi-dimensional sound both on stage and in the studio has amassed the group a reputation thatís brought about their celebration as indie darlings, all the while endearing to the mainstream.
