Melbourne group ‘Mother and Father’ [who performed at Camp A Low Hum 09] are staying cutting edge by doing things the old way; their impossibly simple website oozes with self proclamation and loaded rhetoric, something no one has really mastered since axel dated models, their albums come in super limited, hand crafted, 100 unit runs, and their music is a beautifully filthy, antipodean-Seattle throwback. Their latest single, ‘Ignored,’ is a rollicking tip of the hat to the mightiest warlords 90s grunge. Characteristically rough, darkly melodic and clocking in at a mere 2:04 minutes, this tune is a double happy, bursting from the blocks in a blur of feedback and effective simplicity. Expect to see a lot of others follow the lead of these chaps, as they stand of the shoulders of the past, and look to the future.
