Motorists – “Phone Booth In The Desert of the Mind”


An unexpected delight this morning as one of my tops of 2021 fires back with an amazing new single and word of a new album on the way. The Canadian power trio found themselves weaving between tactile post-punk and power pop on their last album, but the first single from the upcoming Touched By The Stuff is squarely in the latter camp, finding the band as big and bold as ever. Motorists lean heavy in to the ‘90s niche of power pop and alt-rock ribaldry that was a staple of both college and commercial radio. There are shades of post-debut Superdrag, Velvet Crush, and The Blondes, all wrapped around the long shadows of Big Star. Add that to a hook you can’t shake and this one’s pushed to the top of the anticipated list. The new album, Touched By The Stuff, is out May 24th from Bobo Integral and We Are Time.
