Mother Mother put on fun, fun show of pop pop music

Due to the Huron Carole, I missed USS's opening set for a sold out  Mother Mother show at Average Joes, Dec. 2.Mother Mother entertain a full house. Photo by Richard Amery

Mother Mother played a solid set of fun, fun, pop, pop music full of  seizure inducing strobe lights, multicoloured lasers and more importantly, toe tapping beats,  catchy keyboard hooks and plenty of addictive vocal harmonies with ambient guitar hooks   as well.

They started the show off with the  lights dimmed and with the crowd singing along to their new single “Get Out the Way” from their new CD “ Very Good Bad Things.”Mother Mother put on a light show. Photo by Richard Amery

 There were plenty of songs from the new CD sprinkled throughout the set as near the end of the show, frontman Ryan Guldemond thanked the crowd for letting them play some new stuff. Their bass heavy set sounded like a mix of  the Pixies, the B -52s and Men Without Hats as they sang some superb vocal harmonies courtesy of Molly Guldemond and Jasmin Parkin and played addictive rhythms full of catchy keyboard hooks. 

Many of the highlights were tracks from their last album “Sticks” including the title track and crowd favourite “ Let’s Fall in love.”

The lyrics had plenty of animal imagery and had the crowd singing along with much of the set.
While the band was supremely tight, the set dragged in places with more ambient, droning material.

 I ended up moving to the back of the packed house after being deafened by booming drums thundering through the speakers and blinded  by seizure inducing strobe lights.
