MOTH­ERS

Q (UK) - - Q Review -

Re­lo­cat­ing to Philadel­phia af­ter study­ing art in Athens, Ge­or­gia, Kris­tine Lesch­per’s Moth­ers de­buted with 2016’ s When You Walk A Long Dis­tance You Are Tired, whose themes of fe­male sac­ri­fice were mir­rored in Lesch­per’s col­lege the­sis. Her band’s sec­ond out­ing ar­rives amid fur­ther high­fa­lutin ideas of frag­men­ta­tion and bod­ily es­cape, star­tlingly rep­re­sented in the mu­sic. Pink hur­tles along like an ur­gent take on The Cure’s A For­est, all murky gui­tar ef­fects and angsty vo­cals. Blame Kit, about a schiz­o­phrenic’s aware­ness of self­hood, abruptly de­cel­er­ates mid­way through, never to re­gain its orig­i­nal tempo. It might sound a bit much on pa­per, but Lesch­per’s thought pro­cesses re­sult in fan­tas­tic mu­sic – think Warpaint gone de­con­struc­tivism-crazy. ★★★★ AN­DREW PERRY Lis­ten To: Pink | Blame Kit
