FOR FANS OF: Built To Spill, Death Cab For Cutie, Elliott Smith, Weezer, Superchunk, Buffalo Tom, Nada Surf, Clem Snide, The Weakerthans, Jimmy Eat World, MGMT - 7" Single : "Come On, The Cross" b/w "Good Swords" - The music of Young Mothers, lead by singer / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist Zachary Bennett Toporek, calls back to a time before "pop" became a dirty word, when ambitious songwriters armed with melodies, chops and sincerity reached for something more than the stale ambivalence that prevails on the increasingly depressing radio dial.

The "evil-'Hey Jude'" vibe of "Come On, The Cross" finds Toporek and Young Mothers tossing "Under Pressure" style glam rock on its head, sure-footedly mixing classic sounds with modern indie-rock flair.

"Good Swords" is no less distinct, with Toporek's multi-tracked voice offering hymn-like grace.

"Come On, The Cross" is an ambitious step forward from Arts & Crafts, and likely an exciting precursor to the Young Mothers' next release.
