Now talk about a totally unexpected release, the second album "Hard care" from Danish band Momb.
Their brilliant self titled album was released in 1997 so I never thought there would be another album from these guys.
Where have they been all this time? on Mars? hiding underground for a science fair project? living like monks in Tibet? Who knows, but last year they came out of the silence and dropped a fantastic follow-up with "Hard care".
Soundwise, it´s like time stood still and we´re back to 1997, Momb continue to deliver lovely harmonies and excellent vocals in a blend of power pop and west coast sounds.
If Nik Kershaw and Gregg Alexander (New Radicals) wrote a song together and had Mew as backing band, the result could very well be the awesome song "Coke nut".
The track "All you are made of" bring thoughts to Mr Mister´s album "Go on" (1987) so I´m definitely in musical heaven here.
Highlights : Sexercise, All you are made of, Hard care, Coke nut
