The one very bright spot in my week was that I got to see Mother Mother: they were amazing, I spent the whole show dancing and singing along to all of the songs like a madwoman. I have now seen them three times, and they performed an incredibly fun show each and every time. They're easily my favourite Canadian band, and they just keep releasing more and more addictive material.
...which is saying something, because I really love The Balconies and Tegan and Sara.
But anyway, their latest album, No Culture, came out right before the tour started, and I devoured that album, just played it on loop for days, because it is so good. Here's Baby Boy, one of my favourites from the album (I got to see it live alfkmgkldsdmslk):
I love the huge rhythm changes, the "gasping" after he plunges into dangerous water... amazing. In terms of the new song I danced hardest to at the concert, though, that would be The Drugs. So much love. I am already looking forward to seeing them again when they come back to my city. ♥
Anyway, that's the good stuff. The not-so-good stuff was that I had to come in early and stay late several days this week because of an issue at work (now resolved), but there were some passive-aggressive digs being tossed my way during the week which made things that much more stressful and frustrating.
So. Thank you, weekend, for just... being here for me. Love you, bud.
