Mother Upduff’s most recent EP does not shy away from its roots, with psychedelic noise rock overtones leading the way.
The heavy, bluesy, and soulful album brings to mind a grittier sound of soul power, not unlike the Black Keys.
“Concept and Scope” sounds like a James Bond theme from the days of yore, while the dogged guitars of “Parnassus Drive” make you feel as if you’re in a dark, smoky blues club.
The album is bare and raw – no special effects here – as the band continues to embrace its live sound with its strained (and at times, sharp) vocals.Mother Upduff, The Decay
