New Mom: “Skirt”

Man, Mom is feeling themselves right now. Following the topsy-turvy, post-net-label funhouse of Baby Like A Paperdriver, the Saitama artist has gotten a little more sweet, first with the chipper “That Girl” and now “Skirt.” It’s a little lighter, powered by a stroll of a beat and some fat keyboard notes — accented by video game sound effects. What’s slightly different about Mom’s output post album has been that these new songs feel a little more like fully formed rap numbers, giving Mom plenty of space to rhyme about…eat-in spaces and coffee, among other topics. Mom flows over it all well, and the music gets knottier as it goes along — those final guitars! Listen above.
