Athens, GA’s Mothers, one of the bands that won us over at CMJ, have announced their debut album. It’s called When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired, and it’s due out February 25 via Grand Jury Music. It was produced by Drew Vandenberg (who’s worked with their friends of Montreal and Deerhunter) and features Deerhunter’s Josh McKay on vibraphone, plus McKendrick Bearden of Grand Vapids on bass and string arrangements. The first single, “Too Small For Eyes,” is pretty bare-bones, with just singer Kristine Leschper and her mandolin, and some piano and really nice string arrangements. Check it out, with the artwork and tracklist, below.

Mothers also have a ton of tour dates coming up, including SXSW and NYC on January 29 at Palisades and February 1 at Berlin. Tickets wil be on sale soon. All dates are listed below.


When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired’ Tracklist:
1). “Too Small For Eyes”
