'Like A Duck To Water' was Mother Mallard's 2nd & final release, and was originally released in 1976. The music is a unique and extremely enjoyable blend of space electronics (ala Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze), minimal music (Terry Riley, Philip Glass), and contemporary classical & electronics (Gordon Mumma, John Cage). This album showcases a uniquely American slant on synthesizer music by a band whose pioneering contributions to the genre had been forgotten until now. Includes the original album, 20' of previously unheard bonus material, and bonus QuickTime video of the band in performance in 1976. With David Borden, Steve Drews & Judy Borsher.

"A marvel of pioneering electronica." – The Wire

"...the pioneering efforts of MMPMC stand as a monument to thegimmick-less magnificence that can be achieved with a pure application of this technology." – Magnet
