Motherhood – Winded [Streaming]

Today the New Brunswick-based Avant-Rock trio, Motherhood dropped their album Winded via Halifax-based label Forward Music Group.
An intense mix of rock, psych and loudness with some mix of experimental arty vibe.
As the album title suggest, you will be totally winded by the music.

About the album:
Winded dives headlong into a narrative that explores the mundanity of the natural world as it mirrors human suffering.
In their beloved home province of New Brunswick, with its dramatic vistas as a backdrop, the trio spins a yarn about navigating a straight line through a storm in amid the driftwood and stones, under tireless ocean waves, and peering cliffside into a foggy void.

Simply put, the songs on Winded are about “persevering—perhaps for no good reason.” But perseverance is no futile gesture, and Winded is as resolute as a “tightrope over a deep hole”.

The songwriting on Winded pulls language from the “hillbilly” regionalisms he comes from by honestly, painting a vivid portrait of the album’s protagonist and the people they encounter, breathing contemporary life into jokes, sayings, and old wive’s tales.

His delivery throughout cops frequently from hip-hop, helping foreground Sipkema’s relentless, complex rhythms.
All over Winded, Stevens’ harmonies float like some bright ghost, while her bass and synths pulse and sting and wash.
