Mothers
Mothers
Mothers began in 2013 as the solo project of Athens, Georgia-based visual artist Kristine Leschper while she studied printmaking at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Now a quartet, their debut album 'When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired,' released via Grand Jury Music and Wichita Recordings, has earned the young band high praise from the press, including from NPR Music ('First Listen'), The New York Times, Pitchfork, The Guardian, NME ('Radar'), and Q Magazine, among many others, while the band themselves have been included on numerous ‘Musicians to know’ lists for 2016 including from Stereogum, Vulture, Spotify, Paper Magazine and others. Comprised of eight original songs - the majority of which were written while Leschper was finishing art school in early 2014 - 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.
Big Thief
Big Thief
Brooklyn's Big Thief emerges with lilting narratives and twisted, fuzzy guitars, surrounding a heart of song. Their new video/single, "Masterpiece," embodies a visceral turn in Adrianne Lenker's writing toward something heavier, cabalistic in both its darkest and most tender moments – a contrast to her 2013 solo LP, Hours Were The Birds, and her 2014 duo EPs with Buck Meek, a-sides and b-sides. Now, with Meek on guitar, Max Oleartchik on bass, and James Krivchenia on drums, Big Thief will support Here We Go Magic's fall 2015 Be Small album-release tour across the US and Canada from October 22nd to November 21st. Their first full-length recordings are now in production.
