Mos Generator Showcase their Flower Power on “Wicked Willow”

I’ll cop to never having heard a note of Mos Generator. I’m sorry, my inbox is a landmine of links to underground death and black metal releases that I’m convinced our own Dutch Pearce made up just to screw with me.

If that didn’t suggest that I occasionally suck at my job, the confession that I immediately decided to give the band the the benefit of the doubt based on the simple fact that two of the members were spotting Bauhaus and Solitude Aeturnus should only further alarm anyone who considers me some sort of “professional.” Hey, it’s refreshing to see a band who don’t look like their Indie Merch Store order arrived the morning the shoot. Anyway, this time I think it worked! You can peep their new new electric rock jam “Wicked Willow” – hopefully without any such prejudices – below!

“‘Wicked Willow’ shows us consciously moving into new territory,” says mainman Tony Reed.  “As a songwriter I have become less concerned with the confines of the genre I write in and more willing to open the floodgates for all of my influences to make their way into the core sound of the band. That makes some songs, like ‘Wicked Willow,’ hard to define. Heavy pop in B tuning with a self loathing gothic tinge to the lyrics may or may not be the best way to describe it. We will see what the listeners have to say.” 

“Wicked Willow” appears on the band’s forthcoming new full-length Abyssinia, which streets August 5 from Listenable Records. You can order Mos Generator gear here. Sorry, Bauhaus and Solitude Aeturnus swag is unavailable.
