Album Review: Your Motherfucker by Mondo Cozmo (7/10)

This four-song EP doesn’t represent much of a departure from last year’s terrific Plastic Soul, which yielded a handful of alt hits including “Shine,” which went to #1 at AAA radio. The lead track is surprisingly touching lyrically, reminiscent of Mott the Hoople’s “I Wish I Was Your Mother.” The tracks that follow all include the electronic handclaps and ethereal backing vocals that marked the previous release. The final track, “Sold,” is a sludgy drag. Here’s hoping Mondo Cozmo goes a bit further back to his edgier, more rockin’ roots.

Rating: 7/10
