Motherhood - "Pick of the Pugs"

I'm pretty sure Motherhood are the first band we have ever covered from Fredericton, New Brunswick. (Being American, I'm not even sure I could find New Bruswick on a map...) The band have recently released a new single, "Pick of the Pugs." It tells the tale of a painter who starts heavily drinking after a break up and ends up painting the outside of his ex's house. Of course, he claims he's not bothered by the break up. The song has the indie rock feel of the country side of Pavement, but only if they were heavily influenced by oompah bands. 

You can listen to "Pick of the Pugs" below. The song is available now via Bandcamp. For more on Motherhood, check out their website. We included the tour dates on their press release below the song.
