Minus The Bear
Minus the Bear is an American indie rock band from Seattle, Washington. Founded in 2001, the group features current and former members of Botch, Kill Sadie, and Sharks Keep Moving. Their sound has been described as "Pele-esque guitar-taps and electronics with sophisticated time signature composition."
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.
