Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the District. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Every day I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.


This is okay so far. It’s very… rustic. Can music be rustic? Or is that only a good description for Pottery Barn furniture? The chorus isn’t rustic at all, but I still hold that the verses are very rustic. I just peeked at the music video and it kind of looks like a Free People add. I don’t know how to feel about this. There are too many Instagram filters in this video for me to concentrate.

You can see Mother Mother tonight at Rock & Roll Hotel.
