Bands You’d Take Home to Your Mother

What better way to surprise Mom on Mother’s Day than introducing her to your latest crush –musical crush, that is! Many musicians might not fit the bill to bring home to dinner, so we’ve gone ahead and picked a few of the most mom-appropriate indie musicians, whom from their well-groomed appearance to well-behaved reputations would get the go-ahead from mom!

You’re headed back home to the parents’ house and decide to drive to the beat of one of your all-time faves, Belle and Sebastian’s “Funny Little Frog”.

Meet Andrew Bird in “Imitosis”. He’s cute, plays violin and guitar, and seems to know his calculus.

If you’re spending the day inside, “What is Happening,” by Alphabeat, proves that staying in can be a party filled with music, maracas, and dancing!

Lastly, end the day with a little She & Him. No matter who you’re bringing home, “In the Sun” proves that everything will be alright!

What musician would you recommend bringing home on Mother’s Day?

    All my favorite bands are on this list! I just saw Vampire Weekend in concert three weeks ago. They definitely know how to rock hard without causing a scandal. Plus, they’re all adorable! 😉

    Good list! Andrew Bird is one of my favorites anyway–and in addition to calculus, he also has an extensive vocabulary!

    I dunno, my mom would hate all of those bands unfortunately. She actually LIKES Neko Case and First Aid Kit, though. My dad personally is much more open-minded. He is madly in love with Regina Spektor, Conor Oberst, and Alela Diane haha. =)

    All of these Bands are great, but to be honest my Momma prefers stuff like Band of Horses and Dead man Bones (which I’ve introduced to her) but I think that all of these are great songs to listen to in general. In particular Belle & Sebastians Funny Little Frog
    it’s a classic and you can never have to many classics to listen to.
