Motherfeather @ Brooklyn Bowl

Motherfeather; The Adversary
@ Brooklyn Bowl
Brooklyn, NY - July 14, 2013

I've long heard about but never seen before the genre-smashing mini-explosion that is Motherfeather. Something like Iron Maiden meets Pat Benatar along a celestial sea of cabaret and glam dimensions, this was as head-banging sludge as much as it was smoothly sexy. It's rare these days to see rockers take the time to make a visual statement to go with their sound. Solomon Burke lamented not long before we lost him that there was no more flair, showmanship, and spectacle left in rock n' roll. So fitting that those 3 elements are at play in Motherfeather: a heavy metal version of music Solomon Burke would dig.

The Adversary were all make-out music, coming at it from different styles, all wrapped up in a groove. They ended with a cover of "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots", forever changing the context of the song and rendering Wayne Coyne another Barry White.
