Train of Thought, the third full length release by Kamloops, British Columbia based psych quartet Mother Sun is a 12 song day trip through an overstimulated frame of mind. Using 60's and 70's psych pop, garage rock, jazz and soul as a jumping off point, the band refines their modern eclectic storytelling through lush and adventurous arrangements, highlighted by abstract hooks, velvety strings and triumphant horns."
Train of Thought captures the moment as it happened, as natural as possible," explains drummer Jared Wilman. But judging from the way the ribbony loops of Alex Ward's bass weave through the crystal shards of Jared Doherty's and Emilio Pagnotta's guitars, the in-the-room reality experienced by Mother Sun may be a bit more warped than average. "Posing a question, falling asleep/ Glued to a fish eye, blind in the ocean/ Water resistance, growing webbed feet," Doherty sings on "Webbed Feet", as a pulse of retro soundtrack horns and bombast drums propel his bleary-eyed vocals into an endless psychedelic expanse.
That track's blend of riotous complexity and souped up devolution digs at the thesis of the album as it teeters at the edge. "It's all about the way our thoughts control us and we control them," Doherty says. "Being anxious about mind control, noticing your surroundings, caring for your mental health, being mindful of others, and not letting your train of thought run away due to complacency."
