5 track EP “Fear, Hydra-Headed Fear” available now on Bandcamp!
 
Each of our intakes and inspirations have evolved since our last recordings two years ago, this output naturally followed suit. We initially planned to stagger “Nature’s Taking Over” and “Transpire” as separate singles, but they quickly became bookends as our digressions and experimentation brought us three more tracks.
 
Coming to Spotify this Friday!

We are excited to release our first 5 years of recordings, not as a compilation of singles but as one cohesive full-length album.

 
Limited double LP available on color vinyl at Nasoni Records

 

When Nasoni Records approached us with the concept of a collection, my knee-jerk reaction was to drag all the files in the “Mother Upduff Masters” folder and send away. After a few scrupulous listens I felt it wouldn’t hurt to adjust the levels between each song before remastering for the vinyl. Backwards it spiraled from there. A few months later we have 20 tracks (19 on vinyl) completely remixed and remastered to map a progression within an album rather than an era. To obtain an audible common ground : some songs were cleaned and decluttered whereas others were crowded and muddied, room mics were turned up, takes were swapped, entire instrument sections were muted / unmuted, and the tape bias ran hot on the master.

 

Alongside each single comes 3 unreleased songs from an unheard but fruitful period when Eirik Hutchinson joined Mat and I for the first time. Before Erik Mulder brought his skills to our last recordings, Eirik Hutchinson played a huge part in taking our sound out of the two-piece rut. That first season of sonic expansion can now be heard in Transient ( Electric ), The Rover, and Mexico. Contrary to the track placement of our 4th unreleased song, The Priestess was actually our last tune recorded before a brief hiatus. Now with past and present members playing together, Mother Upduff is continuing with a philosophy that mirrors the construction of this album. Each track was dissected and altered according to it’s relationship towards the rest, similar to how we have always played for each other first, the individual second, and those listening last. ( Jeff Collins )
