ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Together In Love We Drown" is Mo' Mojo's sophomore effort. It is an album of 14 original tunes that draw from Zydeco, blues, Americana, rock, Cajun, and New Orleans music. The album blends joy and pain in it's lyrical content - from loving everybody while drinking to crying at Katrina's New Orleans devastation. The title track is a plea for America's political left and right to work together. While musically versatile (many Mo' Mojo members play more than one instrument), and stylistically varied, this album remains true to Mo' Mojo's depth and spirit.

ALBUM REVIEW (excerpt) - John Gadd, Blues Bytes
“Together In Love We Drown...not only lives up to the expectations set by the band’s acclaimed 2010 CD Finally!, but is a follow-up that surpasses the artist’s debut.
Mo’ Mojo, officially showcased at the 2012 International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis, returns with the same collection of accomplished musicians who are gifted with the ability to know when to cut loose, when to hold back, and how to blend together.

ALBUM REVIEW (excerpt): - Buzzbin Magazine (Canton, OH), Sept. 2012
If you’re a live-music fan living in the Akron or Cleveland areas then you’ve probably experienced the high-energy Zydeco romp that is Mo’ Mojo. The band’s garnered a reputation for good ole’ jam-band, Cajun-inspired fun.

...with many jam bands – yes, I would consider Mo’ Mojo a jam band – something is lost in translation from live performance to recording studio. Even The Grateful Dead felt limited when restricted to the four walls of a sound booth. The spontaneity suffers. Mo’ Mojo, however, doesn’t fall victim to the confinement of the studio. The band’s latest album, “Together in Love We Drown,” liberates the Zydeco jam band’s sound and accentuates the finer points that make the band such a sensation live.

The album’s opening track (the title track), gives listeners exactly what they’ve come to expect from Mojo. A funky guitar opens the song, which quickly delves into an upbeat duet complete with brass, washboard and a rockin’ sax solo. The song conjures memories of The B-52s. The main sentiment here is that there’s “no limits to hold us down.” The band sticks to that philosophy throughout the rest of the record.

It’s an appropriate lead-in to the rest of the album, which, for the most part, continues upholding the high bar of the title track. The second song, “Mo’ Mojo Zydeco,” is exactly that: Mo’ Mojo playing Zydeco music. You get a sense that the accordion opening to the song comes directly from a traditional Cajun roots song, but who knows. Either way, Mo’ Mojo is convincing.

The momentum continues until the album’s halfway point with “Soul’s Day Waltz.” The band slows it down and, for me, it’s not something I was expecting. Though I did enjoy the track, it was something I found myself skipping over after my initial listen.

“Please” is another notable track. Jen Maurer swoons listeners with her straight-toned and liquid voice, accompanied by a tune worthy of a workingman’s whistle. “Please” stands in stark contrast to the rest of the album. Its simplicity is divine. It’s the point in the album where listeners will realize that there’s mo’ to Mo’ Mojo than meets the eye.

“Together in Love We Drown” is an album that showcases the many layers of Mo’ Mojo. On one hand, Mo’ Mojo gives listeners the best Zydeco romp music around, yet on the other hand, the band gives listeners contemplative tracks that show off skilled musicianship and attention to detail.
