iTunes Review

Mothers couldn’t be more suited to the indie music mecca of Athens, Georgia. Their off-kilter first album is an ideal mixture of quirk and gravitas, with Kristine Leschper’s hypnotic warble elevating the beautiful finger-picked arrangements of sweet daybreak serenades like “Too Small For Eyes.” But they dip into heavier vibes on tunes like “Copper Mines” and “Lockjaw,” which crank up the overdriven guitars amid the sway and swirl. Moments like these add up to a debut that’s touching, mournful, vibrant, and completely captivating.

I never write iTunes reviews. This album is totally powerful and vulnerable, and worthy of a full listen. In this album I sense elements of art-rock, twee, math-rock, and a hint of emo coming into the mix. Everything blends together so tightly, and there’s not a moment on this I don’t enjoy.
