A hybrid of funk, soul, reggae, folk, and indie, singer-songwriter Topher Mohr's vibrant second album arrives just in time for summer.
Combining funk, soul, reggae, folk, and indie, singer-songwriter Topher Mohr evokes summertime in the big city: vibrant, bustling but relaxed, multicultural, and sunny. A past collaborator with Mayer Hawthorne and Wu-Tang affiliate Brooklyn Zu, Mohr’s second album Phlowers plunders those vintage sounds and creates a genial little hybrid for himself, quixotic and warm, yet grounded as well, his flights of fancy countered by moments of realism.
“Each song on the album is a unique flower with its own style and story,” Mohr tells PopMatters. “Grouped together, Phlowers is a bouquet of the colors and textures we all experience as we make our way through life.”
PopMatters is happy to present the premiere of the new album, which arrives just in time for the start of summer, which could always use a little more musical color.
Plowers will be released on 16 June via DTI Music.
