The hard rock genre generally evokes images of chaotic mosh pits exploding to a soundtrack of aggression. While San Diego based Mower has provided that very score for thousands of fans across the country, the group is showcasing their dual musical personalities by releasing a split CD with their own jazz/lounge alter-ego, Slower, entitled “Make It A Double”. The end result creates a stiff drink that combines adrenaline and a stony new vibe created by assembling mellow grooves with a punk rock thought process.
Recorded in Los Angeles, CA with producer Eddie Wohl (Anthrax, Dry Kill Logic, 36 Crazyfists), “Make It A Double” includes nine new Mower tracks that focus on harnessing the band’s notorious live energy and rewarding their hardcore fans with as much humor, sarcasm and full-on antagonism as possible.
Weaving together numerous musical styles from hard rock to jazz, "Make It A Double" unleashes Mower’s heaviest songs to date while Slower experiments with a new style of punk jazz like a twisted lounge act in a Tarantino film. One minute the band is coming at listeners guns blazing and in the next moment they’re sipping martinis in 3-piece suits grooving to an infectious jazz beat.
