Record Store Day 2016 was a busy one for Birmingham. Athens-based Mothers came to town, so talented our city booked them twice: once at Seasick Records, once at The Syndicate Lounge later that evening. Standing up to critical acclaim from Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, and Consequence of Sound, Mothers began as a solo project of Kristine Leschper and has since evolved into a four-piece, playing together for only a year and a half–a small amount of time for their level of artistry.
Mothers’ debut album, When You Walk a Long Distance You Are Tired swells with feeling and precise instrumentation. Existential lyrics, somber vocals, and languid melodies transition into rousing, though altogether brief, experimental/indie-rock jams. A quick denouement–and it’s back to “the way things were.” When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired reincarnates every step of the way, endearing listeners to the wearier sides of life and, at the same time, encouraging us to maybe get out of bed before the sun goes down.

If it wasn’t for Andrew, Seasick probably wouldn’t exist. They helped release his album, Galilee, in 2009 and that set Seasick down the path to releasing more albums and eventually opening the store. Bryant is a great songwriter, a great dude, and a great inspiration to the people of Birmingham.
Black Willis opens up the show at 7PM sharp!
