Mothers - "Copper Mines"

After raving about "Too Small for Eyes" and calling their forthcoming album When You Walk a Long Distance You Are Tired one of my most anticipated albums of 2016, we have another new song from Mothers to check out.

"Copper Mines" isn't quite as sparse or minimal as "Too Small for Eyes." In fact, it's a fairly straightforward mid-tempo indie rock song. What truly sets it apart from standard indie rock fare is Kristine Leschper's voice. It lives in this world between a traditionally beautiful voice and the discordant-but-interesting voices of the J Mascis' and Marissa Paternoster's of the world. When she's not singing, the swirling guitars keep you sucked in.

When You Walk a Long Distance You Are Tired is due out February 26 on Grand Jury Music. Listen to "Copper Mines" below, and be sure to check out their website and Facebook.
