Heralded by their number one radio hit “The Drugs,” today Mother Mother release their sixth studio album NO CULTURE which features via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.

With the world roiled by fear and division borne out of politics, economic uncertainty, and terrorism, perhaps there is no better time for the arrival of music underpinned by the belief that love wins. Into the maw of anxiety comes Mother Mother with NO CULTURE, which posits that society uses negative byproducts of culture — such as narcissism, hedonism, and addiction — as a means to nurture its fears of the unknown. “NO CULTURE is about something that a lot of us wrestle with in isolation — identity. It’s from each other that we learn the most about ourselves, which is why we’re excited to set this album free. By letting our fans in on the conversation, we discover what the songs mean to them, and how their stories connect with and expand upon ours. It’s this process of shared interpretation that breathes new life, energy and wisdom into our music” says Mother Mother’s frontman, guitarist, and lyricist Ryan Guldemond. The album was co-produced by Brian Howes, Guldemond and Jason “JVP” Van Poederooyen.

To commemorate the album release, Mother Mother are hosting a listening party on their official Twitter account today at 2:15PM PST. Fans will be able to listen along with the band as they share their thoughts and the creative process behind each track. The band is also treating fans to the release of the “Baby Boy” studio session video. The clip is now premiering on Atwood Magazine and will be streaming on Mother Mother’s official YouTube channel.

On the cover, adeptly reflecting NO CULTURE’s visceral themes, you’ll find a painted-white baby doll dabbling in black paint, depicting the immediate imprint society makes on us once we enter the world. And you can hear this struggle to free oneself from this “stamp” chronicled in the anthemic and upbeat “Love Stuck”, where Guldemond bemoans a condition of emotional paralysis by virtue of over thinking (“I’ve got my love stuck in my head… I’ve got my love stuck in my throat”). With tracks like “Baby Boy”, Guldemond treats the verses as a confessional box, admitting his penchant for self-destruction, deceit, and diehard adolescence, while Molly Guldemond (his sister, fellow founding member, and designer of all of the band’s album art) takes the lead with a melodic intervention, “baby boy, baby brother, we’re losing you to the gutter”. “The Drugs”, the band’s driving first single is an address to a lover, deeming her the ultimate high and antidepressant, while “Letter”, Mother Mother’s first piano ballad, nostalgically recruits the age old theme of unrequited love by way of handwritten loneliness.

In support of the release of the album, the band will be embarking on a Canadian headlining tour, which will kick off in Moncton on February 23. The tour will see Mother Mother hitting twenty-five cities and travelling from coast-to-coast with their final dates being in their hometown of Vancouver with five nights at the historic Commodore Ballroom. Tickets for the tour are available for purchase now.

Grammy award-winning global electronic soul funk superstars, Jamiroquai, announce their return with their eight studio album, Automaton. Written and self- produced by Jay Kay and Jamiroquai keyboard-maestro Matt Johnson, Automaton will be available for release on 31 March via Virgin EMI/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. Pre-order the album and receive Automaton as an Instant-Grat track now.

Causing a swarm of excitement from fans across the globe, after the release of ‘Automaton Transmission 001’ last Monday, Jamiroquai release the full length video for the album’s title track, available to watch here. A slice of neo-noir science fiction, the video was directed by Charlie Lightening (Arcade Fire, Bjork) with creative direction from front man Jay Kay. This is the latest visual to be released from the band, who were responsible for such game-changing videos as ‘Canned Heat’, ‘Little L’ & four-time MTV Video Music Award winner ‘Virtual Insanity’.

On Automaton Jay Kay comments, “The inspiration for Automaton is in recognition of the rise of artificial intelligence and technology in our world today and how we as humans are beginning to forget the more pleasant, simple and eloquent things in life and in our environment including our relationship with one another as human beings.”

Founded in 1992 by Jay Kay, Jamiroquai have become one of the most successful acts on the planet since the release of their debut album Emergency on Planet Earth. With famous fans including the likes of Chance the Rapper, The Black Madonna, Anderson.Paak, Pharrell, Tyler the Creator, Jungle, Redman, Stevie Wonder & The Internet, Jamiroquai have consistently proven themselves as one of the most influential musical innovators of their time. With over seven albums reaching the UK Top 10 (and three reaching #1), the Grammy Award winning band have sold over 26 million albums worldwide and hold the Guinness Book of World Records record for best-selling funk album of all time.

Jamiroquai also announce a unique intimate headline show at The London Roundhouse on the day of album release, 31st of March, preceded by their first live show in six years at Pleyel in Paris on the 28th of March. Previously announced, Jamiroquai will also be performing at a string of international headline festival dates.
