hey neighbor

i cannot figure out if i am supposed to take this band (mother mother) or this album (touch up) seriously or not. on the one hand this album is over the top and a bit cheesy (see the doo-wop breakout of the old tune “mr. sandman” in the song “tic toc”, the talk of octa-pie in “polynesia”, and the idea of wearing women’s underwear in “verbatim”. while on the other hand these “over the top” songs are fun and there are some seriously (no pun intended) good songs in the mix as well. “neighbor” has a great bass line and some interesting lyrics and harmonies. “neighbor”, “touch up”, “oh ana”, and “legs away” are the stand out cuts for me.

judge for yourself. you can hear a few songs here and here.
