Soccer Mommy – Clean - New Vinyl Lp 2018 Fat Possum Limited Edition 'Ten Bands One Cause' Pressing on Pink Vinyl with Download - Indie / Lo-Fi / Alt-Rock
Street Date: 10/5/18
Four years ago, the charity initiative Ten Bands One Cause began with a diverse array of artists releasing 10 albums in limited quantities on pink vinyl with the goal of raising awareness for Gilda’s Club NYC, a charity that provides free support for everyone living with cancer along with their families and friends.
Sophie Allison aka Soccer Mommy's debut Clean is an emotional album, heavy on themes of growth, isolation, and change, but balanced by a lightness of touch, and with hooks to spare. "Still Clean" is a stunner of an opening track, with the signature warmth of Allison's voice coupled with one of her best refrains. Her growth as a lyricist is most evident on "Cool," a sharply observed character study describing an aloof stoner girl, so cool and untouchable, and the agony she inflicts on her boyfriend. "Flaw" is the comedown from a song like "Cool." A melancholy ode to lovesick self-loathing that finds ecstasy in sadness. "Scorpio Rising" crystallizes these themes of identity, jealousy, and the desire to be someone else. Clean – the cohesive record Allison dreamt of making – is a true step forward, a strong and mature album from an artist just coming into her power.
