SuperMother (Playing Thursday)
Supermother is a reincarnate of mid 70’s deeper album rock that, by its very definition, rebels against the confinement of the genre. Progressive compositions are steered by the extraordinary sensations of ordinary, human experience, and are unladen by traditional songwriting structure and predictability. Mehal’s guitar lines are teeming velvet, the tangled veins out of which he pumps impassioned, visceral sentiments. The arrangements are expertly understated, from high tide pressure of concentrated instrumentation to vibrating, atmospheric negative space, Supermother is an after-hours tribute, a sparse, leather-bound chronicle of honest, imperfect confession through the haze of a smoky small-town tavern.
