Single Mothers are releasing new album ‘Our Pleasure’ in June

The well welcomed sequel to the Single Mothers story. Listen to them as they continue their downward spiral of substance abuse, ego decay, and an emerging Canadian punk legacy.

It’s been three years since these Canadian punks Single Mothers released their debut album ‘Negative Qualities’ but after a bit of a wait, they’re back with a new LP!. ‘Our Pleasure’ is released through Big Scary Monsters on 16th June and comes after singer Drew Thomson spent about a year casually floating around Ontario doing a number of odd jobs. In the end though, trying to do the normal 9-5 was a bit of a grind, and he felt like he just had to get back into the studio, taking the group to Jukasa, located on the Ohsweken Native reserve about half an hour away from Hamilton.

Despite not having any songs (or even enough band members) at first though, they pieced ‘Our Pleasure’ together. Speaking of how he sees the band now, Thomson explained in a statement: “I look at Single Mothers now more as a vessel that I’m happy to be riding in, or an apartment that people come to visit and leave little things behind in […] A couple beers or a shirt, or a poster on the wall, and those things build up and either make a home or just a pile of junk. It’s up to us to decide.”

Single Mothers LP opener ‘Undercover.’ It’s less than three minutes of clashing drums, explosive riffs and Drew continuing to spit out lyrics that mash up an outsider’s perspective on society with religious banter.

Justin Townes Earle: Single Mothers

For his fifth full-length album, Justin Townes Earle doubled down on the more laid-back, R&B-influenced sound he carved out on his previous 2012 record. On “Single Mothers”, the Tennessee songwriter plays the role of soul crooner (“White Gardenias”), roadhouse bluesman (“My Baby Drives”), and high-lonesome balladeer (“Pictures in a Drawer”) with equal grace. The claustrophobic, burnt-out blues of “Today and Lonely Night” is the real highpoint, a vintage Earle tune that climaxes when the singer gives his excuse to stay in on a Friday night in New York: “Darling, I just don’t feel much like going to Brooklyn tonight,” he moans, possessed with the voice of someone who’s seen far too much and needs to say nothing more. That same sort of sinister subtext can be found on “My Baby Drives,” where the narrator who’s all-too happy to be riding shotgun refuses to reveal why he’s been unable, lately, to take the wheel. “Single Mothers” may trick you into thinking its a simple record, but it just may be Earle’s darkest.

Once compared to a man who wears many suits, in thirty-two short years Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell. His fifth album (Vagrant Records) serves as the perfect platform for such narrations. Entitled “Single Mothers”, the album showcases exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana. With his heart and soul still rooted in Nashville, Single Mothers shows Justin’s continued combination of catchy songs and authenticity. The album was recorded live with his four-piece touring band with only days of rehearsal leading up to recording to keep the ideas fresh. No overdubs, no other singers, no additional players – just a real, heartfelt performance capturing the moment. Justin will be at the Nottingham Glee Club on the 4th February with the added bonus of Andrew Combs as support a more than worthy headliner on his own
