Formed in a Boston dorm and relocated locally for the time being, alternative powerhouse Mom Rock caravans to the Ballroom for their Austin debut. Dubbed Rolling Stone’s Hot Band of 2022, the three-person antithesis boasts sleek baseball uniforms and music fest spots (ahem, South by Southwest and the Rock Boat) alongside a delightful mastery of pop-rock bliss. On December EP Bases Loaded, Mom Rock coolly melds aughts-Killers rumble with 2019-Wallows power pop. The result yields 11 minutes of deceptively optimistic croons backed by fuzzy jangles and thumping hooks. Vision Arcade primes with cascading blues/alt-rock, and Golden Days open with hazy Petrichor.
