In 'Mother, this (German) Swiss septet expands their indie-folk sound by incorporating a host of exotic instruments to generate an experimental, yet accessible & alluring, sound. Their signature style is still based upon the dreamy, slightly accented, vocals of frontwoman Janine Cathrein, but the arrangements eschew traditional chorus/verse structure for a more free form structure. Their smokey, flowing sound is accented with a variety of stringed instruments and synths all played by the band, including Cathrien's siblings Vera & Simon. Looking for a unique indie-folk sound with a hint of jazz styling - this disk's for you.

RIYL: Bon Iver, Bill Callahan, Ben Howard

FCC: #3 - disk is clean

Glue - slow & dreamy ode to JC's grandmother who has dementia with a number of instruments fading in & out over vocals (slow, 2:17)***

Human Kind - mysterious, opens with acoustic guitar & builds with swirling orchestration (med, 5:15)*

One and One Equals Four - gentle yet spooky, soft vocals over piano opening, slowly builds (slow, 5:41) FCC@3:37

Transience - slow & dreamy start, builds to crescendo with guitar, drums & piano (med, 6:29)

Make the Seasons Change - surf rock vibe with synths & orchestration (fast, 4:26)**

Affection - soft vocals over piano with spacey guitar & synths dancing about (med, 5:14)**

I Am My Mother - fascinating vocal harmonies over dual lead guitars (slow, 3:10)***
