Mothers - When You Walk a Long Distance You Are Tired - vinyl LP Mothers originally began as the solo project of Kristine Leschper, and it's easy to hear where this song would slot in with that iteration of the group. After playing ten shows at this year's CMJ, Mothers has signed to Grand Jury Music in the U.S. and Wichita Recordings in the U.K. The Athens, GA-based quartet release their debut album When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired on February 26th, 2016. Comprised of Kristine Leschper (vocals/guitar), Matthew Anderegg (drums), Drew Kirby (guitar), and Patrick Morales (bass), Mothers has also confirmed new U.S. tour dates, including shows at SXSW. Produced by Drew Vandenberg - who has worked on albums by Of Montreal, Deerhunter and Porcelain Raft - at Chase Park Transduction in Athens, Georgia in December 2014, '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. Comprised of eight original songs - the majority of which were written while Leschper was finishing art school in early 2014 and fleshed out together with multi-instrumentalist Anderegg - Mothers' debut 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.
