Mothers began in 2013 as the solo project of Athens, Georgia-based visual artist Kristine Leschper while
she studied printmaking at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. Now a quartet, their debut album 'When You
Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired,' released via Grand Jury Music and Wichita Recordings, has earned
the young band high praise from the press, including from NPR Music ('First Listen'), The New York
Times, Pitchfork, The Guardian, NME ('Radar'), and Q Magazine, among many others, while the band
themselves have been included on numerous ‘Musicians to know’ lists for 2016 including from
Stereogum, Vulture, Spotify, Paper Magazine and others. Comprised of eight original songs - the
majority of which were written while Leschper was finishing art school in early 2014 - Mothers’ debut LP
is an introduction to the foundations of the young band, a snapshot of a particular period of their
genesis that maps both where they began and where they are heading.
Foozle is a Maryland-based rock band, active since 2009. The band began while all three members were still in high school, and has grown into some organic mishmash of occasional practices and spurts of writing and recording. Foozle, the unit, is comprised of three friends—Jake Lazovick (Sitcom), Joanna Smith and Ryan Witt (Go Cozy, Universal Friend Rays). Raised in Montgomery County, Maryland, the trio formed in high school and haven’t left each other's side since. While each member brings their own personality to the music of Foozle.
Keeper is an emo revival band that was formed in Oklahoma City during the fall of 2013 under the influence of bands such as Citizen, Balance and Composure and Title Fight. Following the release of their debut Self-Titled EP, the band developed a solid local and regional fan base throughout the Midwest before hitting the studio during the later months of 2014 to record their follow up EP, entitled "Perfect Home," that was released in February of 2015. Shortly thereafter, the band set their sights on even more touring and soon hit the road on solo tours along with treks with such acts as Papertowns. (Famined Records) and Variants. As they continued to gather buzz, they quickly caught the attention of Famined Records, whom they announced their signing to in the summer of 2015.
