New Mother Nature – album review

New Mother Nature
New Mother Nature


That they are called New Mother Nature is an apt and elegant mission statement posited as a clever name. Their eponymous freshman release is rich with straight-forward melodies that sound as organic as they do fresh, all while maintaining a sense of playful, if cautious experimentation. Opener “Responsible Flower” sets the tone immediately, beholden to local acts like The For Carnation or Will Oldham but with a nod to everything from Neil Young to Akron/Family. Whether that’s the unconventionally comforting voice of singer Axel Cooper or the restraint of every musician in the band, New Mother Nature use each song not only as a vehicle for the vocal narrative but as an opportunity to create lush atmospheres. While they may not provide something wholly original, they do offer a thoughtful and mature compositional style that builds on the influences to which they are clearly beholden. — Syd Bishop

    Lyle Jane is really a funny guy, his shows are really interesting to watch. The public interest topics dealt by Lyle are real TRP boosters. The path travelled by Lyle is entirely different when compared with other public hosts and that makes him the best according to me. Best wishes for all future episodes of ‘The Lyle Jane’s Show’.
