Mothers
Mothers began in 2013 as self-taught songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kristine Leschper͛s solo project as she studied printmaking in Athens, Georgia. Leschper's earliest musical influences span a great swath of early aughts rock and folk including Interpol, Sufjan Stevens, Joanna Newsom, The Microphones, and Athens legends Neutral Milk Hotel; she later developed a love for experimental music, math rock, and noise artists as well. Over time, Leschper began collaborating with fellow Athenian Matthew Anderegg and a fully flushed out band soon fell into place. In 2016, Mothers released their debut album ͞When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired͟ to great critical acclaim. Named a Stereogum͚Band To Watch͛, Pitchfork͛s review of the album compared Leschper to Angel Olsen and Sharon Van Etten while Noisey exclaimed that the record ͞is singer-songwriter prog rock for grown up emo kids.͟ Now based in Philadelphia, Mothers will spend 2018 working on their sophomore follow-up.
