Pals of Mother Mother
One of the most anticipated cds slated for release in 2011, Eureka is the latest from Canada's (and Quadra's) harmonic pop quintet Mother Mother.
The cd is the indie pop-rock darlings' most tenacious and undaunted production to date. Eureka offers up eccentric, hook-laden pop-meets-rock songs housed in creative arrangements with clever lyrics and intricate harmonies.
The cd is the creation of Quadra's own Ryan Guldemond and is mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Franz Ferdinand, Elvis Costello).
With the release of Eureka, Mother Mother is poised to reach new milestones and groundbreaking heights. The disc's first single, The Stand, was the #1 most-added track at Canadian Alternative Rock Radio.
Mother Mother has kicked off 2011 touring their hot new cd to sold-out audiences in LA, San Francisco, Sacramento, Portland, Seattle, Nanaimo, and Campbell River.
In March they play New York state, Toronto, Austin Texas, and Victoria BC. In April fans can catch them in Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Regina, and Winnipeg. The tour wraps up in May where they headline at the Vogue Theatre and The Commodore in Vancouver.
Of the new cd, Ryan Guldemond says "Our new songs are bolder and more animated. The word 'eureka' suggests epiphany and exciting discovery."

Here's what fans are saying:
"Awesome!" "Love it!" "They're so creative!" "I'm counting down the days to Eureka!" "Can't stop my toes from tapping along!" "It's amazing!"
