Canadian eclectic rock outfit Mother’s Green formed as the brainchild of singer/songwriter/guitarist March Giaccari in Ontario in 2008. Shortly after formulating his idea for Mother’s Green and completing several songs, March wasted no time and hired bassist Brent Kervin and drummer Kevin Correia to help him complete Mother’s Green’s self-titled debut album, resulting in a raw and infectious collection of catchy grooves. Mother’s Green’s self-titled album did well for a completely independent release and saw several positive reviews.
After the completion of the self-titled record, Brent and Kevin exited the band to venture into other musical endeavours. Determined to continue with Mother’s Green, March tapped drummer Dean Glover and bassist Mike Simpson in 2009— just in time to enter BWC Studios (The End, Moneen) in Toronto to record the follow up to their self-titled record, entitled Swimming in the Sun. The album was mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music (Converge, Mastodon) in New York. Shortly after recording, bassist Nick Tipe entered the band to handle bass duties in the place of Mike Simpson. Swimming in the Sun was completed with no label support, and the band continued on to self-finance their new video for ‘Observation for the Day’, cut from the new album.
Swimming in the Sun is available now in a 180g vinyl/CD combo pack at www.mothersgreen.com. The new album is a sonic journey from start to finish— with warm guitars, pounding, echoing drums, and resonating bass. Mother’s Green promises to reach a wide fan base; followers of 90’s grunge bands like Soundgarden and modern-day stoner rock and sludge metal bands like Baroness, Earthless, and everything between will enjoy Swimming in the Sun.
