The Mommyheads – Coming Into Beauty

Release date: February 12, 2021

The Mommyheads
recently remastered and re-released their 1992 sophomore release Coming Into Beauty. This is early, pioneering experimental indie-pop. There is dark whimsy on the instrumental track Nino Wrote a TuneI Started Breathing might be the album’s focal point. The tune gently strides along the spare ukulele and rattling percussion, boasting chord changes familiar to Brazilian pop and bossanova. Like a Brick is a heartfelt campfire song with quaint folk harmonization. It’s easy to here pieces of tracks like Today sprinkled throughout indie rock albums from the past 30 years. An underrated find for sure.

Play: 3, 4, 7, 11
