Word to the name of the band this post is about, because Mothers have announced a brand new album. Fresh off their signing to ANTI- Records, the Philadelphia by way of Athens, GA group will release Render Another Ugly Method, their second full-length, on September 7.

Wait, what is that dessert secretly and lovingly tucked into the sack lunch (mother humor!)…is that album announcement? An album teaser?? AND a full song!? Aww, Mothers, you’re the best!

“Blame Kit” is the full song in question, exemplifying Mothers’ brand of “left-of-center indie rock” that trips over the border into near-prog or math rock territory. The album teaser previews a different song, “Baptist Trauma,” showing just how far out there the band can stretch the boundaries of their sound.

If none of my mumbo jumbo makes sense, head down below to hear the good music for yourself. Make sure to also check out the artwork and full tracklisting for Render Another Ugly Method down below; and if that whole combination of sight and sound appeals to you, pre-order the album here. Remember, Render Another Ugly Method is out via ANTI- Records on September 7, a day that henceforth will be known as “Mothers Day.” Got a nice ring to it, no?
