What captured me most about Mommy & Daddy is its lyrical poetry. The verses are a disorienting swirl of imagery – fast cars, drinks, baseball – it feels like a patchwork of America over the past decades. There’s a timeless feel to it, like it’s an artefact from a time gone by, but at the same time being contemporaneously relevant. It’s quite a feat.
Yet, it’s not surprising considering the time Stuffy Shmitt has had to develop his sound and song writing over a long career full of stories. Now based in Nashville, Mommy & Daddy is one of a number of creations born from depression and mania which once threatened to take over his life. It’s perhaps the silver lining that we can now enjoy the resulting art.
