Band To Watch and best new band Mothers released their debut album, When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired, in February of this year, but the band has been working together a lot longer than that, which means that there are a lot of stray odds and ends that didn’t fit onto the album but still justify a release. Earlier this year, we got an early demo called “Mother And Wife“; one of the first tracks we heard from the Athens group was “No Crying In Baseball,” which was actually recorded after they had finished their debut. “Easy As Possible,” which will be included on an upcoming deluxe edition of When You Walk…, is from somewhere in between. Kristine Leschper tells Interview that the song came out of some four-track work she had been doing with bandmate Matthew Anderegg: “They were just sort of these explorations that we were doing at home—they feel really intuitive and really special to me now,” she explains. Listen below.
When You Walk A Long Distance, You Are Tired is out now on Grand Jury in the US and Wichita in the UK. The deluxe edition will be released on 7/29. You can order a 7″ featuring “Easy As Possible” and “Accessory Cloud” here.
