Mothers at Pianos 10/14/2015
Athens, GA band Mothers began in 2013 as the solo project of visual artist Kristine Leschper and became a full band in 2014. Naming a variety of disparate influences, Mothers' music can go from delicate folk-pop to math-ier sounds that recall Dirty Projectors. Leschper's emotive voices binds it all together. The band will release their debut album in 2016 but you can stream a few songs -- including singles "It Hurts Until it Doesn't" and "There's No Crying in Baseball" -- below.
Mothers are here for CMJ and played their second of many shows on Wednesday at the Kanine/Dr. Martens party at Pianos (with Car Seat Headrest and more) and the upstairs room was packed (reportedly with a lot of various label folk) for their 1:45 PM set. Pictures are in this post. You've still got a bunch of chances to see Mothers this week, including BrooklynVegan's free all-day party on Saturday (10/17) at Baby's All Right with Lilys, Martin Courtney, Stealing Sheep, The Gotobeds, free Bell's Beer, and more. Full lineup, set times, etc
