Capping off a whirlwind year, the young men of Mom Jeans. have found a perfect home.
It was November 2016 when we first told you to be on the lookout for Mom Jeans., the latest digital obsession of the Bandcamp generation. Now, less than a year later, the group has found a home at SideOneDummy Records. It’s the perfect pairing of creativity and business, like when Jim Halpert met Dwight Schrute, and we could not be more excited for what the future holds.
It only takes a single spin of Mom Jeans.’ debut album, Best Buds, to understand their appeal. The group’s simple, yet oddly profound songs toe the line between emo and modern indie rock with tongue in cheek lyricism too catchy for anyone to deny. Tracks like “Scott Pilgrim Vs. My GPA” use a familiar genre song structure to lure in unsuspecting music fans before delivering something only the members of Mom Jeans. could create. Using their knack for deeply personal storytelling the band finds a way to connect with listeners through the minutia of everyday life. Their stories are not extravagant, but rather incredibly grounded, and its in the simplicity of it all that the group finds their best material.
The announcement of Mom Jeans.’ signing with SideOneDummy included the news that the band’s next record would be coming out in 2018. Until then, SideOneDummy has a few limited copies of Best Buds available for sale in their online store. There is also limited edition celebration shirt designed by Joel Kirschenbaum.
