SONGS FOR MOMS: The Worse It Gets the Better: LP+CD

Calming, aggressive, and accessible are words that can all be honestly used when discussing The Worse It Gets the Better. Songs For Moms contains three women who write beautiful, strong lyrics and sing them with their beautiful, strong voices, while playing acoustic instruments, beautifully and strongly. And while at times this album reminds me of Rumbleseat, or the Pogues, or even the theme song from Sealab, Songs For Moms always maintain ownership of the music with their uniqueness, honesty, attitude, and character. Even when hopeless romanticism is handed out in heavy doses, these songs tell a tale that’s relatable and endearing. I have yet to play this album for someone who hasn’t totally dug it.
