Ahead of its release next week, Mothers are streaming their debut album in full.
‘When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired’, as well as being a helpful piece of advice, is the Athens group’s debut album. Set for release via Wichita Recordings next Friday 26th February, you can hear it in full below, via NPR. It follows lead singles ‘Too Small For Eyes’ and ‘No Crying In Baseball’ and its suitably gloomy accompanying video.
