When You Walk A Long Distance


'When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired' is the debut album From Atlanta's Mothers who were the toast of CMJ 2015 Produced by Drew Vandenberg who has worked on albums by Of Montreal Deerhunter and Porcelain Raft at Chase Park Transduction in Athens Georgia in December 2014 'When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired' features collaborations with Josh McKay of Deerhunter on vibraphone as well as McKendrick Bearden of Grand Vapids who played bass and provided string arrangements throughout Comprised of eight 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 The album's bookends perhaps most explicitly display this musical chronology The gorgeous 'Too Small For Eyes' was the only one of a few solo songs Leschper had written on the mandolin that made it onto the album its use of space piano strings and her voice entwining and undulating to elegantly set the stage for what unfolds afterward closer 'Hold Your Own Hand' blooms from its plaintive opening bars to an ascendant spirally waltz to an uproarious mathy breakdown hinting at the louder more postrock and math rockinfluenced sound for which their live show is fast becoming known for Across the album Leschper meditates on the human condition what anyone's place is in the universe what is our value mortality and what it means to have relationships in consideration of all these things And while the songs are filtered through her frequently difficult personal microcosmic experiences she relates them in a manner that is at once highly intimate and readily universal At heart 'When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired' is about being alive and just how surprisingly unmooring and exhausting this fundamental thing can be The album is a window into the long path Leschper traveled while creating it breathtakingly honest and rooted in the subconscious of one's journey LP With Download
