Mood Rock is the third full-length album from Vancouver musician Jody Glenham.

Often drawing comparisons to Mazzy Star and the more contemporary Sharon Van Etten, Glenham wistfully drifts listeners into a vivid altered reality with hazy vintage tones and classic songwriting.  Her songs have always been about travel, disappointment, and the unsubtle realities of contemporary life, but through the melancholy and malaise somehow her recordings insist upon putting the needle back to the beginning for another hopeful listen.


A self-proclaimed “summer witch”, Jody was appropriately born on a Friday the 13th, and although it wasn’t intentional, upon looking back at the completion of the new album she realized there was a through line of mortality, as she “explored the darker side of life and the lighter side of death.”


An in-demand DJ, side musician, and most recently, radio host, Jody has been called an “MVP” of the local scene by the Vancouver Sun, and even had a shoe named after her by the infamous shoemaker John Fluevog (aptly named “The Glenham”.)  She is a go-to opener for promoters needing a local band with cachet, and has supported everyone from cosmic cowgirl Pearl Charles to indie veteran Dean Wareham, and performed with punk legends Slow.


Mood Rock is set to release on August 7, 2020. Made in collaboration with producers Raymond Richards (Local Natives, LCD Soundsystem) and Louise Burns (Gold & Youth), early singles from the new record have already received spins on Spotify's New Music Canada, KEXP in Seattle and CBC's Afterdark, and been placed in TV series including Netflix’s The Order. It’s an affirmative step forward for the Vancouver scene staple as she claims her space and her sound.
