When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired

Grand Jury
LP $17.75

CHECK STOCK!!! Received a 7.1 rating from Pitchfork. Following a 10-shows-over-five-days jaunt at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon, Stereogum’s ’50 Best New Bands of 2015’ designation, and early praise from NME, Radio 1, and many more, Athens, Georgia quartet MOTHERS release their debut album. Comprised of KRISTINE LESCHPER (vocals/guitar), MATTHEW ANDEREGG (drums), DREW KIRBY (guitar), and PATRICK MORALES (bass), the LP is an introduction to the foundations of the young band, a snapshot of a particular period of their genesis that maps both where they began and where they are heading. The album’s bookends perhaps most explicitly display this musical chronology. The gorgeous “Too Small For Eyes” was the only one of a few solo songs Leschper had written on the mandolin that made it onto the album, its use of space, piano, strings, and her voice entwining and undulating to elegantly set the stage for what unfolds afterward; closer “Hold Your Own Hand” blooms from its plaintive opening bars to an ascendant, spirally waltz to an uproarious math-y breakdown, hinting at the louder, more post-rock and math rock-influenced sound for which their live show is fast becoming known for. When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired features collaborations with JOSH MCKAY of DEERHUNTER on vibraphone as well as MCKENDRICK BEARDEN of GRAND VAPIDS, who played bass and provided string arrangements throughout. For fans of Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten.
