Team Mom = Cerveris + Weezer

I was not prepared to be so pleasantly surprised. This album is darn good. With a surge in the indie-pop scene as of late, Team Mom is a welcome addition, bringing a new-age alternative with a twist of ’60s folky electric guitar and swing-jazz drums. That doesn’t mean they don’t have an edge, however. As you listen to the album and hear how they approach each different song, you’ll quickly realize Team Mom is no one-trick pony. The tunes are catchy enough that the album’s opening song, “Rabbit In Red,” was stuck in my head for two days after listening for the review. While they’re not reinventing the genre, they sure are doing a fine job working it.
