Rating: 8/10

Compare to: Old Time Relijun, Abe Vigoda, Raccoo-oo-oon, Pocahaunted, Yellow Swans

This elusive Magik Markers release hits hard with a lesser degree of vocalage and a more guttural instrumentation. Its significantly more ambient and slightly more minimalist and bit less palpable in comparison to their past releases. Pwtre Ser is like swinging too high for too long alone, or hanging out with people who don't listen to you scream.

Mother Mother's previous release, Touch Up, was legitimately harder to come across, but that was before this recent blow up of album linking. Regardless, O My Heart, their 2008 sophomore album, shows up the chirp of a debut in good fashion. Perfect for a happily spent lonely day in your sunshine dimmed flat, Mother Mother harmonize vocals and instrumentation far better than any band has done in a few years now. The album has an amazing collection of variations making it quite effortless to listen to all the way through.
