Songs For Moms – “I Used to Believe In The West” – [Thrillhouse]

humana   10/2/2009   12-inch, A Library

The moms are angry, at least if you judge by these songs that can start out with what seems like mellow singing and then do a 180-degree switch into yelling, swearing, and fast-paced tirades. Sometimes this Oakland three-piece of females give you snatches of harmonizing and cool bass and guitar change-ups, but the mood swings in the music leave you on edge, which is probably the point. Alternating between upbeat quirkiness that is almost on the verge of country folk, and all-out punk, angry rock, this band has captured the rollercoaster moods of mothershood, even though its musicians seem way too young to have had this experience.
