dizzying, powerful classic rock guitar sound draws you into Kenney's magnetism Stereogum

An exciting blend of alternative/pop rock that feels both poetic and punky - Pop Matters

New Zealand has Lorde the UK has Foxes and the U.S. has Lana Del ReyCanada's response to this trendis the irresistibly beautiful, Mo Kenney. - Mind Equals Blown


With her third album, The Details, Mo Kenney traces her own strange, devastating, and ultimately hopeful trip through the trials and tribulations of booze-fuelled breakdowns, clouds of depression, and disintegrating relationships. On each of its 14 tracks, she unflinchingly confronts her annihilation and eventual redemption, leaving nothing out. The concept album is her most personal and cohesive work to datecombining elements of bruising rock 'n' roll, vivid psychedelia, and haunting, left-of-the-dial pop, Kenney navigates the darkest waters in her life with self-deprecation, genuine soul-baring, and typical black humour. It opens with a calm before the storm as the eerie sadness of Cat's Not a Cakeabout splitting a beloved pet in half as a relationship falls apartprovides a deceptively gentle beginning to a ride that swiftly steers into self-destruction.
Following up with the off-the-rails overdrive of On The Roof, The Details explodes out of the gate, finding Kenney unable to escape the dangerous spiral she finds herself in. Before and during writing the album, Kenney was en route to rock bottom: depressed with dark blues and drinking like a fish, unable to hold herself or her relationships together, alienating the people she loves, and living hell-bent on oblivion. She comes to terms with her own toxic behaviour while channeling the late Elliott Smith through spectral atmospheres on June 3rd. With Maybe I Ama reverb-soaked tune that turns to punchy guitar riffsshe realizes in the midst of trying to hook up with someone that she can't interact with humans properly. The hazy, laid back calm of Counting finds her worried she's fallen so far into despair that she's losing her mind. And the vicious, rollicking If You're Not Dead shows her playing warped mind games over feral guitar solos and biting hooks.

Somewhere along the way, Kenney finds herself dazed and broken in a place that not many people find their way back from. Unglued, with its breezy sway, is likely the most summery song put to tape about being fed up with your own messy self. I Can't Wait recalls the gauzy dreamscapes of Yo La Tengo with a hushed and grateful understanding that as bad as things are, it's not the end of the world. But it's not necessarily smooth sailing from there, as Kenney struggles to stay optimistic with Lights Out, and sings about getting clocked in the face at a bar by some meathead during Punchy. Still, she can't help but find the hilarity in getting slugged, slyly laughing through her bloody teeth the whole time.

Finally, she arrives in less troubled seas, closing softly on the sparse, clear-minded Feelin' Good. The storms weathered to get there may be the kind that leave lasting scars (or at least a few post-bar stitches), but with clear skies on the horizon, Kenney wears those scars as a reminder of what she's been through, and the kind of seasons in hell she's capable of enduring. Her latest is a record of all those storms and the routes and detours and trials of pushing through them while keeping her sense of humour gracefully intact. By turns rowdy, reflective, brave, funny, and deeply honest, it signals an already accomplished songwriter coming fully and completely into her own as an artist. Produced by Mo Kenney and Joel Plaskett, The Details vividly documents Kenney's fight to survive her own worst enemyherself.
