Mother Mother – No Culture

“No culture, I got no culture.”

If you’re able to take time to peruse the lyrics on Mother Mother’s new album No Culture, you’ll find few things ring as true as this statement. More importantly, the words must be read in silence to avoid that weird mind-pollution thing that happens when stylized vocals muddle the pure essence or validity of what’s intended.

Artists can be fickle that way – only they know what they want their audience to be captivated by most. With this project, it’s probably not the musical compositions.

Which isn’t to say the music is lacking, per-se, just that lyrically, it gives us not-so-slight clues (or suggestions, perhaps even realizations, depending how far you take their poetic regression) that peace, love, respect, soulfulness and neutrality aren’t just some burnt-out, dipsy-doodle words that have been overused over the decades.

No, the tidings are in recognition that on Earth, as people, a society, a progressive think-tank of resolve, we will be destined to hear such phrases (continually and repetitively) until the lesson is learned.

That’s what Mother Mother is: a sage consciousness that pushes us to accept what’s good in ourselves and our space in this world. Exceptionally bright, isn’t it? That’s how you do Canadian indie pop/rock mystically.
