Boomkat Product Review:
It’s quite remarkable that despite the hugely testing vocal quality that Mum keep on pushing further and further upfront in the mix, their music still just seems to affect us in the most moving way possible. “Nightly Cares” could not under any circumstances be described as anything other than beautiful . A Haunting piano line, the feel of something lost and forgotten, simple dusty instrumentation and even the typically charmed icelandic lyrical construction and kindergarten delivery all working together in life affirming solidarity : fragile, flawed, sublime, breathtaking. The exclusive track on the flip ‘Once a Shiny Morning Puddle’ is a more upfront, instrumental piece – guitars, horns, drums and electronics working to deliver a slightly baroque, post-rockish number that counterpoints the A-side beautifully with a lonely-hearts rub-off between a lonely melodica and a frustrated roll of the drums. Endlessly lovely music. Strictly limited edition copies only.
