Since their prior two plays in 2016, Athens avant-garde indie-pop-prog-rockers MOTHERS have moved onward to Philadelphia and signed to the amazing Anti Records! It's a pleasure that the team over at LAVA Presents and Gallery5 kept us in mind and let Strange Matter host them on their rescheduled date! If their prior record on Wichita Recordings is any indication, the upcoming "Render Another Ugly Method" is very highly anticipated. Lava and G5 have some killer special guests in the works.

MOTHERS began in 2013 as self-taught songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kristine Leschper’s 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 Tired” to great critical acclaim. Named a Stereogum ‘Band To Watch’, Pitchfork’s 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.
